Tekhenu: Obilisk of the Sun


Product Overview

Four millennia ago, on the eastern bank of the Nile river, was laid the foundation of the Temple of Amun-Ra. Over the course of 2,000 years the temple complex was gradually expanded and became widely known as "The Most Select of Places" (Ipet-Isut), boasting the largest religious building in the world. Today, the site is known as Karnak, located at Luxor in modern-day Egypt.


Join ancient Pharaohs in creating and growing one of the most impressive sites the world has seen, honoring the Egyptian gods Horus, Ra, Hathor, Bastet, Thoth, and Osiris. You must carefully manage the balance of your actions, preparing for the reckoning by the goddess Maat.
