THE MONUMENT
The Temple of Karnak itself is actually made up of three main temples, several smaller walled temples and a large sacred lake. The three main temples are dedicated to Amun, his goddess wife Mut, and the god Montu. The museum contains a collection of statuary that was found throughout the temple complex.
Karnak Temple is reached by a grand avenue lined on each side with ram-headed sphinxes, originally nearly two miles long. Visitors then pass through the massive Hypostyle Hall, famous for its rows and rows of columns. The paint at the tops of the columns can still be seen today, thousands of years after it was applied by the careful brush of an ancient Egyptian painter.
This room is 54,000 square feet and has 134 columns, and to this day it is the largest room of any of the world’s religious buildings. Queen Hatshepsut, who challenged ancient Egyptian history by becoming the first female pharaoh, was aware of how important Karnak was, and she had her thoughts inscribed on a towering obelisk: ‘O ye people who see this monument in years to come and speak of that which I have made, beware lest you say, ‘I know not why it was done’. I did it because I wished to make a gift for my father Amun, and to gild them with electrum.

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.
The Karnak Sound and Light Show highlights the dramatic history of ancient Thebes. The show narrates the achievements of some great Pharaohs, with poetic descriptions of the ancient treasures. As visitors walk through the complex, the pharaohs arise to tell the story of their interesting lives, as haunting music mysteriously flows through this ancient city. Ancient and poetic voices tell the visitors about the birth of Karnak temple and the heroic achievements of the pharaohs and the god Amun. It is an enchanting and supernatural experience to listen to sound effects and gaze at the magnificent ruins illuminated during the well-presented show.
