The Amazing Karnak Luxor Temple Complex in Egypt
Temple Complex, commonly known as Karnak , comprises a vast mix of decayed temples,
chapels, pylons, and other buildings. Building at the complex began during the
reign of Senusret I in the Middle
Kingdom and continued into the Ptolemaic
period, although most of the extant buildings date
from the New
Kingdom. The area around Karnak was the ancient
Egyptian Ipet-isut("The Most Selected of Places") and the main place
of worship of the eighteenth dynasty Theban
Triad with the god Amun as its head. It is part of the monumental city of Thebes. The Karnak complex gives its name to the nearby, and
partly surrounded, modern village of El-Karnak, 2.5 kilometres (1.6 miles)
north of Luxor.
