Overview

The karnak temple is one the distinguished identifying marks of Luxor in Egypt, where each of consecutive kings tried to make his temple most magnificent so as to be so distinguished than his predecessor, so the Karnak temples changed to a complete guide and collection showing the development stages of ancient Egyptian art and distinguished pharaonic architecture.

Temple of Karnak has a massive footprint and something behold. Numerous columns reaching high into the sky. The area is well maintained and traces of colour can still be found on some of the hyrogliphixs. Definitely worth spending some time there.

Karnak is truly amazing. It is temples within temples, with monumental obelisks, columns, statues, carvings of multiple Pharaohs.

It had been nearly 30 years since I was last in Luxor and I was stunned, again, by this temple complex. It boggles the mind what was accomplished here. A real highlight for my son was asking around to various guards and having a back...More

You must see this temple. I was so impressed by huge columns with hieroglyphs and obelisks. I did walk there from the Luxor downtown (Pavilion Winter Palace Hotel) around 45 min - 1-hour walk depends on your walking speed. It is a bit crowded attraction....More
