Karnak is a small population of Egypt and was part of ancient Thebes. The complex of Karnak is the oldest known religion in the world. Karnak is a huge open air museum, which exhibits very important, remains of the culture of ancient Egypt. After the pyramids of Giza, the Temples of Karnak are the second most visited attraction in Egypt. For centuries Karnakwas the religious center of the highlights of Egypt. The main temple worshiped the god Amun, but, as in other temples of Egypt, is also worshiped other gods. The complex of temples of Karnak is composed of: the great temple of Amun, Montu enclosure and Mut, and Khonsu temples, Opet and Ptah. Within the walls around the main areas, there were several shrines and smaller temples, and many stores and farms. The main difference between the Temple of Amun at Karnak and most of the rest of the temples of Egypt is the effort and time spent on its construction and subsequent expansion. Approximately 30pharaohs contributed to its construction, transforming it into a complex which, by their large amplitude, had no precedent.
