I will pick you up from your hotel reception to commence your tour to Karnak Temple.
Karnak Temple is the world’s largest religious complex. It encompasses over 300 acres. Many generations of pharaohs shared the temple construction. The construction began in the time of Senwosret I in around 2000 BC and stopped in 343 BC after Nectanebo II’s death.
The complex’s main temple is dedicated to Amun, and two small temples are dedicated to his consort Mut, and to his son Khonsu. There is a huge sphinx avenue that connects Karnak temple to Luxor temple, used in the Opet festival, to take Amun’s golden statue to Luxor Temple to confirm the pharaoh’s kingship.
Then you proceed to the majestic Luxor Temple.
Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-1353 BC) of the 18th dynasty and Ramses II (1279-1213 BC) of the 19th dynasty built Luxor Temple. Other pharaohs like Horemheb and Tutankhamen left their traces in the temple.
As well as Alexander the Great had his own chapel inside Luxor Temple. The Romans added a small Roman Chapel, which today is known as a church.
The Muslims later built a mosque on top of the temple known as the Abu El-Hagag Mosque when the temple was buried in sand and dust.
