Not one single structure but a labyrinth of many Temples, Pylons & Obelisks, Ram headed and Human headed Sphinx, a Sanctuary, the Sacred Lake, The Hypostyle hall and Hatshepsut's Obelisk. The largest and most important group in the site is the central enclosure, the Great Temple of Amun proper. The oldest remains on the site of North Karnak date back to the end of the Middle Kingdom and belong to urban settlements, with mud-brick houses, granaries and workshops.
