The key difference between Karnak and most of the other temples and sites in Egypt is the time over which it was built and developed. It took long time to arrive at its final shape. Here, we are not talking about one temple; but, a complex of temples. As an ancient Egyptian temple, the construction started in the Middle Kingdom and continued to Ptolemaic times. Almost all the rulers of Ancient Egypt left their mark in this vast and huge complex. It is approximately thirty pharaohs contributed to the buildings. It led to a size, complexity, and diversity not seen elsewhere.

The Karnak Temples Complex houses a number of temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings. The construction at the complex began during the reign of Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom and continued to the Ptolemaic period. Although, when taking a close look at the place, we can find the majority of buildings date back to the New Kingdom.

This complex is a vast open site.It consists of four main parts: the great temple of Amon, the Precinct of Mut, the Precinct of Montu, and the dismantled Temple of Amenhotep IV. There are also a few smaller temples and sanctuaries connecting the Precinct of Mut, the Precinct of Amun-Re, and the Luxor Temple.
