luxur attraction places

Karnak temple in luxur

Referred to as the world’s largest open air museum, Luxor, known as Thebes in ancient times, is home to some of the most spectacular monuments of the ancient world. Perhaps one of the most astounding areas in Luxor is the temple complex of Karnak. The largest temple complex ever built by man, Karnak represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders.Passing through the gates of Luxor, every visitor is astounded by the expansive city made immortal by its gigantic monuments. Though much of Luxor and Karnak are in ruins, the site remains one of the crown achievements of ancient Egypt. The massive columns of Karnak once supported heavy ceilings, but today they are open to the sky. With a little imagination, the visitors of today can be transported back in time to the days of the pharaohs. Over a period of 1300 years, the temples built at Karnak became an entire city of monuments.
