Karnak Temple Complex

The Karnak Temple Complex, the largest and most impressive temple site in Egypt, is probably the largest religious complex anywhere in the world.  It is located near Luxor, a region which is also home to many other impressive sites including the Sphinx and the Pyramid of Giza.  The complex is a conglomeration of three main temples and several smaller ruined temples, and to give you an idea of the scale, the main temple alone covers an area of 65 acres!  This main temple, the Temple of Amun is the largest and most impressive, and is also the only temple that is currently accessible to tourists as this is still an active archaeological site.
