Photographer's Note

How stupid of me to cut off the upper part of Trajan's Kiosk. But I was so happy to see the Arabic couple under the palm. For me, they seemed to be more important.

What is the largest temple in the world? To answer this question we first have to establish what a temple is. Although roughly defined as a structure reserved for religious or spiritual activities not all religions use the word temple. In the Western Christian tradition temple is rarely used for example so these churches and cathedrals will be excluded.

With this definition, the largest temple in the world is Angkor in Cambodia, the second is Karnak, the third is Borobudur.

Although badly ruined, a few sites in Egypt are more impressive than Karnak. It is the largest ancient temple complex in the world and represents the combined achievement of many generations of Egyptian builders. Karnak actually consists of sever
An avenue of sphinxes leads to the pylon.

Karnak complex is so large that I would love to spend more time there. There are some parts that I haven't seen. was there in the afternoon, when I left, the light seemed especially beautiful. I have seen the photos by Chris, he complained about the high temperature, above 40 degrees. In December, the weather was perfect, around 26-28, good for visiting the
ruins. But one can't have all. In Hurghada, it was cold, too cold for snorkelling for me.

I hope you will like it. Two more pictures in Workshop, More attractive are large views.
