The statues of the sphinxes are located at the entrance of the Karnak temple. There are 2 rolls and many are still intact. The Sphinxes made the entrance to this ancient temple very impressive and grand. Worth a stop for pictures.

It is very beautiful and amazing, there is a lot of renovation and restoration work is going on, but still its worth visiting this site to witness the beauty of these sphinxes. In the night you can clearly see the much more enlarged beauty of these structures.

Relatively recently discovered archeological site connecting Karnak Temple with Luxor Temple - still is largely under excavation and partially obstructed by modern buildings (including the church and the Art School). May be someday it will be fully excavated - would be nice to see this Avenue of the Sphinx in its full Glory!

Although a lot of the sphinxes have eroded, they are still an impressive sight. It was quite hot the day we were there, so remember to take water with you as it is out in the open

Go at night. It has a nice vibe- and is relaxing with the breeze and absence of a searing sun. In fact, this entire temple area is nicely lit up at night. We got there just before sunset for some really pretty views.
