The Egyptian temples of Karnak are located 3 kilometres north of Luxor.

The awe-inspiring Avenue of the Sphinxes leads to the entrance of this magnificent location. It was here, during more than 2,000 years, that the kings of numerous epochs had their final resting places.

Artistically carved hieroglyphs and paintings can be found on all the buildings in Karnak. They relate to various gods and also to the royal builders of the respective temples. Pinedjem, the high priest of Amun in Thebes and Pharaoh of the 21st Dynasty, has been immortalized by a fifteen metre high colossus.

The impressive courtyard of Ramses The Thirdís temple is flanked on three sides with imposing Osiris pillars, that are adorned with hieroglyphs that depict the Pharaoh in his finest jubilee clothes.

A hundred and thirty four columns, each with a circumference of ten metres, once supported the roof of the ĎGreat Column Hallí that has long since disappeared. Like a wonder of the world, this hall contains each of the breathtaking twenty metre high columns. Even today, hieroglyphs cover a large part of the gigantic columns that originally stood in the darkness of the main temple and were covered by a massive ceiling.

Due to its beautiful buildings and art treasures, the temple area of Karnak is a much-prized and unique jewel of ancient Egyptian history and culture.
