Egypt: Karnak Temple in Luxor

Karnak is not just one temple but a whole complex of them, one bigger then the other. It was the capital of ancient Egypt during both Middle and New Kingdoms, and is now the second most visited site in Egypt after the Giza Pyramids. Everything is supersize here as each pharaoh tried to outdo his predecessor – massive stellas, humongous columns that dwarf you, enormous statues and animal figures, and sprawling temples. If you though Mommy and Mommy Returns were all fake – come to Karnak and realize that both movies didn’t stray far from reality as these structures, sizes, and atmosphere are all real!
