In such a centre it was natural that the gods of many different cities should have a home, and the temples of nineteen gods are mentioned in various sources. The Oldest object of worship was probably the bull Apis, a part of the veneration of animals which preceded the higher theistic ideas.

But it was eclipsed by the great establishment of Ptah, which occupied as large a space as the enclosure of the temple of Amen at Karnak.
