Karnak Temples 

The ancient name for Karnak was Ipet Isut, 'The Most Select of Places'. Although a major part of the vast site is occupied by the Great Temple of Amun, temples were also built here for other Egyptian gods including Amun's consort Mut and the lunar deity Khonsu - the other members of a triad of gods worshipped at ancient Thebes.

The Karnak Temples were progressively enlarged by many New Kingdom pharaohs who added a succession of pylons, courts and halls. Builders included Tuthmosis III (ruled 1504-1450 BCE), Amenhotep III (1386-1349 BCE) and Ramesses II (1279-1212 BCE).
