Immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Temple of Karnak, the world’s largest temple. Serving as the chief sanctuary for the great god, Karnak is an expansive complex, surpassing any other monument in Egypt. Encompassing many separate temples, this magnificent site spans 1700 years of expansion and covers a sprawling 300 acres.

Journey from Karnak Temple to the majestic Temple of Luxor, originally commissioned by the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Amenhotep III (1387-1349 BCE) and later expanded by the formidable 19th Dynasty pharaoh Ramses II (1279-1213 BCE). The temple’s legacy is further enriched by the contributions of various rulers, including Tutankhamun, Horemhab, and Alexander the Great, who adorned the structure with reliefs, inscriptions, and additional constructions.

These catacombs started as a private tomb for a wealthy family, then became a public cemetery. The catacombs house more than 300 tombs.

From the catacombs to the nearby Pompey’s Pillar. Many of the ancient historians did not tell us more details about the “Pompey’s Pillar” but about the buildings that stood nearby and have disappeared now. The hill on which the pillar is erected was covered with temples and houses a long time before the Roman era. It was the place of the Citadel of Rhakotis. A temple was dedicated to Osiris-Serapis was built on the mountain.
