Karnak-Temple - Obelisk of Thutmosis I at the central court
Luxor & Karnak

We are located here in the central courtyard of the temple behind the Third Pylon, which was built by Amenothep III around 1380 BC. At that time it was the entrance to the temple.

We also see the Fourth Pylon, built at the beginning of the 18th Dynasty, about 150 years earlier by Thutmosis I. At this point Thutmosis I erected a pair of obelisks. Only parts of one of the obelisks (left) are still lying on the ground, while the right one is still standing upright.

More About Luxor & Karnak

Part of the Holy Land, Egypt offers a fascinating mixture of ancient pyramids, temples and other religious monuments. There are numerous possibilities to explore Egypt from desert treks to trips down the Nile or scuba diving in the Red Sea and along the Sinai coast. Cairo, which means “The Triumphant”, is home to the pyramids, sphinx and over 17 million residents within its metropolitan area. Luxor is often described as the world’s largest open air museum, built on the ancient city of Thebes. The Karnak temple complex, located near Luxor, is a collection of ancient temples, chapels and various other buildings.
