Temples of Karnak

Highly recommended
A veritable sacred city devoted to the cult of Amun-Re, Karnak is a gigantic sanctuary dedicated to the Theban Triad. In addition to theTemple of Amun , you will also see here the temples of thegoddess Mut and thegod Khonsu . Karnak is one of the most important sites of the Nile Valley. Digs began here in 1860, but the site has yet to reveal many of its secrets, and research and digs continue today.
