The Karnak temple complex is the largest ancient religious site in the world.Much larger in size than the Luxor Temples, Karnak's massive complexes house exceptional hieroglyphic depictions and beautiful architectural ruins. These complexes are so large that often times you will find yourself completely alone and your space and photos free of large groups of tourists. This also means there are plenty of resting spots in the shade! The Hypostyle Hall, made up of 134 columns (picture on the right) is an amazing site. when you look at the man in the photo you can get a sense of how tall the columns are. The majority are over 10 metres, while 12 of them are over 20 metres high!
