The Karnak Temple in Luxor is over 4000 years old and built over 2000 years from 2055 BC. A cult temple dedicated to Amun, Mut and Khonsu, it is the largest religious building ever constructed, and can fit The Notre Dame Cathedrals and St Peter's in Milan just in the central temple walls.

The Ancient Egyptians believed that towards the end of annual agricultural cycle the gods and the earth became exhausted and required a fresh input of energy from the chaotic energy of the cosmos. This involved a 27 day regenerative festival called Opet and culminated in a procession to the Luxor Temple 2.4 km to the south through the avenue of sphinxes currently being restored.
Today it is still jaw-dropping, but imagine it in full colourful splendour and in prime condition. A must if you are visiting Egypt.

The famous Karnak Temple in Luxor is truly a sight to behold. Karnak isn't just one temple, but rather a whole city of them. The complex is so huge it feels neverending at times, and apparently 30 pharaohs contributed to its construction over the years.
My favourite part was the great Hypostle Hall, where this photo was taken. It is more than 16,000 square metres and features 134 massive columns, apparently making it the largest room of any religious building in the world. The whole complex is second in size only to Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
