The second pylon in Karnak temple
complex leads in a hypostyle hall, the hypostyle architecture is
known to be found mainly in palaces and temples; this type of
architecture doesn’t need arches but only pylons or columns.
This huge hypostyle hall was built by Seti I and Ramses II who
was the son of Seti. Nowadays only ruined temples are seen at
Karnak but even though are considered as one of the main visited
place in Egypt. Ipet Isut was the name that the ancient Egyptian
gave to the temple of Karnak. The largest precinct on the site
is the one of Amun who was the god of Theban Triad. The precinct
of Montu son of Amun is much smaller than Amun’ one but is not
open to visitors; the precinct of Mut has its own sacred lake
and is connected with several smaller temples and also not open
to visitors. Part of the temple of Mut has been used in other
structures. On the site is also located the temple of Amenhotep
IV but the temple was destructed after its builder died.
