    Travel video about destination Karnak.The Egyptian temples of Karnak
    are located 3 kilometres north of Luxor. The awe-inspiring Avenue Of
    The Sphinxes leads to the entrance of this magnificent location. It
    was here during more than two thousand years that the kings of
    numerous epochs had their final resting places. Artistically carved
    hieroglyphs and paintings can be found on all the buildings in
    Karnak. They relate to various gods and also to the royal builders
    of the respective temples. Pinedjem, the high priest of Amun in
    Thebes and Pharaoh of the 21st Dynasty, has been immortalized by a
    fifteen metre high colossus.The impressive courtyard of Ramses The
    Thirds temple is flanked on three sides with imposing Osiris pillars
    that are adorned with hieroglyphs that depict the Pharaoh in his
    finest jubilee clothes. A hundred and thirty four columns, each with
    a circumference of ten metres, once supported the roof of the Great
    Column Hall that has long since disappeared. Like a wonder of the
    world this hall contains each of the breathtaking twenty metre high
    columns. Even today, hieroglyphs cover a large part of the gigantic
    columns that originally stood in the darkness of the main temple and
    were covered by a massive ceiling. Due to its beautiful buildings
    and art treasures, the temple area of Karnak is a much-prized and
    unique jewel of ancient Egyptian history and culture.
