This temple is worth a special visit at night while cool breezes float off the Nile.....It is lit spectacularly. Do not miss this. One of the most beautiful temples in Egypt. Also visit the Crocodile Mummy museum on same site...Gorgeous!

Most of the temples that we visited in Egypt closed around 4 or 5pm. Luxor temple is open until 9pm. It is after the sun goes down that you have to experience this place. The lights bring on a livelier feel to the place. We were lucky enough to visit on a night with almost a full moon. Another advantage... More

This is a well restored and well-kept ruins of an ancient Egyptian temple complex. The temple complex was built with Sandstones in the city of Luxor, located on the bank of Rive Nile. It really amazes me, sandstones of around 1 square meter could be raised and stacked to the height of around 20 to 30 meters without the aids... More

A really great place, full of history, heritage and culture you must visit at least once in your life. As an architect, i must say it is absolutely amazing to visit such great constructions that are still standing nowadays.

Visited here in October 2014 and was amazed at the sheer size. It was very hot, its a good idea to wear a hat, comfortable shoes and bring water. Well worth a visit.

Having visited several times before the ticket office is now on opposite side of the Corniche, in the square which was cleared of the trees and paved sometime ago. There are now a lot more traders and even small toy cars for kids to drive round in! Entry through is easy enough and there are toilets and a cafe area,... More
