Visiting the temples of Karnak always triggers powerful emotions: from wonder and fascination to meditation. Located at the gates of the modern city of Luxor, the ancient capital of Thebes, and spread across 100-hectares, this site is home to the grandest building from antiquity. Built in the Middle Kingdom and occupied for over 2,000 years, it boasts remarkable preserved temples, walls, doors, colonnades which reflect the evolution of styles and beliefs. While you are only permitted to visit Amun-Re's temple complex, your trip to the temples of Karnak will likely be one of the highlights on a trip to ancient Egypt.
