The road to Karnak temple in Egypt is filled with lovely pink phoenix flowers and sweet ripe date palm trees. Karnak Temple is the temple of the sun god Amun-Ree (Arabic Ree is the sun). This is the largest temple complex in Egypt still exists today and is also one of the most important archaeological sites of Egypt. The temple is located east of the Nile , built dating from 1580 - 1160 BC and not only built by a Pharaoh but by about 30 Pharaohs in succession.
The gates of the temple are two huge rows of lion-headed lions, despite being badly damaged by time and war, leaving the imprint of a glorious period. In the dazzling sunlight of the African land, the Arab girls were covered with scarves, wearing long robes wandering back and forth.
In the temple is still stored hundreds of stone columns 16 m high, more than 1 m diameter. According to the concept of ancient Egyptians , stone pillars were flowering plants growing from the earth. Therefore at the top of the stone pillars in ancient temples, we often see carved soft patterns. The walls of the temple are decorated with reliefs depicting Pharaohs using bows and arrows to destroy evil and extremely vivid colors.
