Proceed Luxor tour to visit Karnak Temple, in ancient Egypt, the power of the God Amun of Thebes gradually increased during the early New Kingdom, and after the short persecution led by Akhenaten, it rose to its apex. In the reign of Ramesses III, more than two thirds of the property owned by the temples belonged to Amun, evidenced by the stupendous buildings at Karnak. Although badly ruined, no site in Egypt is more impressive than Karnak. It is the largest temple complex ever built by man, and represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders. The Temple of Karnak is three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples located about three kilometers North of Luxor. Egypt is situated on 247 acres of land.

Early on, Memphis was more likely a fortress from which Menes controlled the land and water routes between Upper Egypt and the Delta.

However, by the Third Dynasty, the building at Saqqara suggests that Memphis had become a sizable city.
