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.

Karnak Temple is literally stunning. It is a treasure trove for anyone interested in Egyptian history and is a very well priced attraction - 80 LE per person. Best temple we visited in two weeks of exploring Egypt.

Perhaps one of the most imposing remnants of the past Egyptian grandeur. The columns in the temple simply take your breath away!

Best to get a guide here to explain to you the meanings and significance behind everything here. Once you know, it is truly mind blowing. The structures are still in amazing conditions, you can not miss going here.

The many different sights at this ancient temple are incredible. And so is the Sound & Light Show that tells the story of its glorious past.

Depends on the time you have to spend in Egypt. We took time to visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, and with so much to see we needed to squeeze in things when we could. Enjoy.
