Karnak Central Court EG074971jhp 
 Karnak Temple Egyptian Obelisks central court panorama Thutmose Statue Osiride near the most sacred part of this huge sprawling site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and Karnak is the largest religious complex on the Nile. This photograph is looking back into the main area of the temple from the central court area, now a large open space in front of unusual Festival Hall of Thutmose 111. The Granite Sanctuary of Philip Arrhidaeus who ruled briefly after the death of Alexander the Great is visible over the truncated column in the immediate foreground. The obelisk is that of Hatshepsut while the smaller one on the left is that of Thutmosis 1.
