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.
