I’ve been obsessed with visiting Karnak Temple ever since I saw The Mummy Returns. When the opportunity arose to visit, I jumped at the chance! This open-air museum is very interesting with its decaying temples & hieroglyphics. Located in the ancient city of Thebes, this temple is said to be the largest ancient religious site in the world & second most visited site in Egypt…behind the Pyramids of Giza (source Wikipedia). It was even more majestic than I had imagined. At the heart of Karnak lies the Temple of Amun…king of the gods. Karnak has everything…endless courts and halls, a sacred lake, statues of pharaohs, etc. This was the highlight of my visit to Luxor. It’s AMAZING!
