You visit the temple of Amun when you visit Karnak. It was the principal religious center of the god Amun-Re in Thebes. Impressive columns and other structures. Sphinxes lead to the temple.

The Temple of Amun features a number of parts that were proposed by different pharaohs. Seti I and Ramses II created the Great Hypostyle Hall with its myriad of columns; some with lotus bulb and others with open flower capitals. Previous pharaohs, such as, Thutmose III and Hatsheput had begone work on parts of the temple hundreds of years before. Interestingly, the deeper you go into the temple - the older it gets. A twelfth century structure is at the heart of the complex. As with anything to do with Karnak; time is what is needed to appreciate the vastness of the temple and its long history.

Enormous pillars provide a perspective of the power and might of the ancient Pharaohs. An essential part of the Karnak complex.

Walking between these columns really makes you feel small and the accomplishments of these ancient people seem enormous. This is part of the Karnak experience, so a must see when in Luxor.

The Temple was built over a long period of time starting from as early as 12th dynasty. Many pharaohs competed to decorate the Temple to made it more magnificient. We were impressed with the 134 columns. The 2 central rows of columns are higher than the rest and they are papyrus columns with open capitals. The other columns have papyrus columns with closed capitals.
Our guide showed us the botancial garden besides the Great Festival Hall of Tuthmosis III. It was in the form of reliefs carved in the shape of plants and flowers. We were impressed by the imagination of the pharaoh!

A temple within a temple. Karnak Temple is the master complex with Amun located in the middle. It is hard to discern because they all seem to blend together.

This is within the Karnak complex. Fewer columns than many other locations and temples, but of an impressive size.

As a part of the much larger Karnak Temple complex, the Temple of Amun is hard to review on its own. Karnak Temple is an entire complex, the biggest in Egypt, of temples. Each Pharaoh believed that he had finished the house of God, but the next one would build even more. Certainly the Temple of Amun with its soaring columns is a wow on your visit to Karnak, and if you look closely, you can see both original paint and the grafitti of visitors back to the 1800s. On a previous visit in 1989, I found that Lord Byron had visited and saw fit to carve his name on a column in the Hypostyle Hall. This temple is certain to be at the very top of your list for sites in Egypt. It overwhelms, and if you want to get the whole story, see the Sound and Light Show here. I don't normally like these, but this one is great and will be reviewed separately.

There is a wonderful statue of Osiris and Amun-Ra here and it's in fairly good condition. Amun-Ra is the most transcribed of the Egyptian gods. This should be on your visit list.

The AMUN Temple is one of the many architectural structures we toured within the Karnak complex. The god Amun Ra was the sacred sun god to the ancient Egyptians. Visiting Amun & Karnak Temple is one of those unique experiences of travel, it is a “Wow” site to experience - but having a guide is Must. Try to Visit Amin at Karnak twice, if time permits, once in daytime & once for the nighttime Sound & Lights - both amazing experiences. Enjoy !
