Karnak Holy Temple Complex

Let us show you the wonders of Egypt

Karnak Holy Temple Complex

Please fill out the form

The Karnak Temple in Luxor is the world’s largest temple complex, with so many components and sizes that each portion of the temple was erected by a different King from the new Egyptian Kingdom.

The oldest part of the temple dates from the time of King Mentohotep NebhepetRa, the founder of the middle ancient Egyptian kingdom. He was the 9th king of the dynasty to which he belonged, but he is considered the founder of a kingdom because he reunited Egypt’s two lands into one country (2061 BC – 2010 BC).

Even Alexander the Great and his brother paid close attention to the Karnak temples, sharing building materials and rebuilding others. The temple was formerly connected to the Nile by the Sphinxes Avenue, which still survives in part. When talking about Karnak, it’s worth describing the contents of an ancient Egyptian temple because tourists will see numerous temples inside and this will help you distinguish each temple in the complex.

The ancient Egyptian temple consists of:

  1. An open courtyard (the biggest part of the temple)
  2. the first pylon (consists of two separate parts)
  3. Colonade (a courtyard surrounded by columns)
  4. the second pylon (also consists of two parts)
  5. the hypostyle hall (a hall with many columns. Ceiled in most temples)
  6. the third pylon (two parts)
  7. the appearance hall (where God believed to appear)
  8. the sanctuary (the holy of the holies)

The great temple of Amun, which is readily accessible from the complex’s main entrance, is the largest and most easily recognizable temple in the Karnak complex. The rulers of the new kingdom constructed the temple, including Ramses II, Seti I, Tutankhamun, and even Queen Hatshepsut, who erected two massive obelisks to the enormous Amun temple at Karnak.
Monarch Thotmouses III, who was a magnificent king with a fantastic sense of humor and a particular relationship with the Egyptian people, allowed the ordinary people to see the rear of the sanctuary by building the Akh Meno hall of festivities.

The sacred pool was dug by the same monarch Thotmouses III to assist people in cleansing before conducting the daily prayer.
Tip: The sandstone was used to construct all of the ancient Egyptian great temples, including those built by the Greeks, with the exception of the modern-looking temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the temple of King Seti at Abydos, which were built of Limestone. Inside each temple, there may be some elements made of various materials and stones, such as Granite stone.

What People Say About Us

Thank you Egypt Fun Tours for a most memorable trip. I admit I didn’t do any of the planning (it was all done by my boyfriend) but as you can read in the reviews below Hani (the owner of Egypt Fun Tours) is superbly organized and accommodating with scheduling.

My boyfriend and I, and our dearest mutual friend, booked the 7Days-6Nights tour. In short time, we visited Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor sailing down the down the Nile, pit stopping to see key sites at these location – and so much more!!! We got to know the ancient and modern egypt in depth thanks to Hani’s impressive knowledge. He also enlightened us on the people and their beliefs and went as far as showing us what a typical life looks like. I cannot express the level of personalized service Hani offered us. He was flexible to adapt to our requirements and added sites to our schedule that was not part of the tour simply to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our experience in Egypt.

I went to Egypt practically blind-folded, not knowing what to expect, especially considering the time we had decided to go (December 2020 – we were the first group that Hani met with after months of having to put his tour agency on hold considering the pandemic) yet he managed to surpass all of our expectations. I felt so incredibly lucky for us to have stumbled on Hani. I would recommend Egypt Fun Tours to anyone and everyone. It was truly, HANDS DOWN, the best cultural experience I’ve ever had. You’ll be in the best of hands.

Nille cruise,Luxor and Aswan where amazing sites to see, specially when you have with you the best tour guide in Egypt .Hamada was absolutely fantastic, lots of information and some of them not spoken by others. This guy was not only a simple tour guide for us, he became a good friend also. Was a one in lifetime experience. Highly recommend Fun Tours. Really a great experience.

Hamada was incredible! So knowledgeable and kind. He had information about every item, street corner, and relic we looked at. Any questions we had, he had answers! He even made sure to give us tips while walking through the crowds so that’s we would feel more comfortable when being approached by vendors. Oh and the food?! He took us to the best places! Delicious food!! We tried Egyptian fried chicken, falafel for the first time, the best shawarma in the city (we love food). We even got to meet his beautiful wife and children and try some “French” Egyptian coffee in their home! Truly made friends for life!! We’ve promised to host him and the family when they travel to America for the first time! Such an incredible experience, and Hamada (and family) made it that much more memorable and amazing!

Excellent trip to historic sites with no one else around. We came to see Egypt while most places still had COVID19 fears. The staff at Egypt Fun Tours were professional, safe, and great to deal with. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I feel like I just got a a year of Egyptology in the last week and we had all the sites to ourselves due to COVID19. While people are shutting down and staying home you should feel safe to come explore with Egypt Fun Tours and have the place to yourself.
