Description

The ancient Egyptian name of the temple was Ipet-isu—or “most select of places”—by the ancient Egyptian, over 2,000 years to build the complex of Karnak from the middle kingdom to Greek-Roman period.

It is the largest religious center ever built,  about 200 acres (1.5 km by 0.8 km), and was a place of pilgrimage for nearly 2,000 years,  dedicated to the Theban triad of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu.

The Hypostyle Hall, one of the most interesting things we will visit about 54,000 square feet continue  134 columns, is still the largest room of any religious building in the world.
