Karnak is a village in Egypt that was once part of the ancient capital of Egypt, Thebes. It is situated about 2 miles North of Luxor. For many centuries Karnak was the religious centre of Egypt, with each Pharaoh adding, or altering to the temple complex. It was the main temple for the cult of Amon, but like many other Egyptian temples, other gods and goddesses were worshipped there. The temple now has a daily Sound and Light show, which gives an insight into the history of this sacred site.
