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.

This is undoubtedly one of the greatest attractions in Egypt. An amazing, huge ancient temple with giant pillars, obelisks and stunning hieroglyphics. You have to see it to believe it, pictures will not do it justice!

One of the showstoppers on a Nile cruise. It is without a doubt magnificent and well worth the 120 Egyptian pounds to get in...no problem with taking photos and you don't pay extra for the privilege like at some other sites

From the ancient east coastline of the great River Nile, an avenue with Ram's Head Sphinxes lead you to the great and expansive pylon of the Karnak Temple. The great height immediately make you feel inferior. As soon as one crosses that, the huge standing...More

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.
