The Karnak temple is a must visit place to see the massive stone columns and the Obelisks. You won't regret the visit, but the Sound & Light show costing $30 is a waste of money and time! If you have a tour guide during your visit to the temple, then you will have enough information to understand what it's about.... More

Most certainly worth visiting at night. To stand in the ruins and look up to the stars and imagine the time in the past when this was an active temple....is a feeling not to be missed. The lighting of the temple features is well done but the light show after exiting the temple was very poor and looked like it... More

This is one of the major ancient Egyptian sites in Luxor. Very conveniently located in the city. Floodlit for evening visits. If you don't have a guide take a descriptive guide book to really appreciate what you're seeing. A marvellous experience for those interested in Egyptology. Highly recommended.

Wow! This temple was incredible and the history behind how the temple was lost and buried and then excavated to its current state was amazing. Walking through the humongous walls and seeing the massive pillars was breathtaking. What made it even better was my tour guide, Mohammed Albasha from Egypt Tailor Made Tours who was extremely knowledgeable and painted the... More

It has 134 column with the symbol of papyrus flower. It was constructed by Seti I and completed by Rameses II. There is a lake at the far end. A... More

Can only say this was mind blowing. It is a massive place and you can only stand and wonder as to how they built it. One tip would be to get there early before all the crowd as it gets very busy.
