An amazing temple and probably where Moses was educated. The temple lay-out is a great example of Egyptian temples. An area where only common people could go, an area where the priests could go, and finally an area where the Pharoah (god on earth) could go. Does that sound familiar ??? The Temple of Solomon !!!! Go to Egypt, but... More

Some temple in Luxor has light show at night. This is one of them. So I recommend you to visit this place two time. During the day, you can enjoy the structure, and feel the ancient Egyptian architecture, and during the night, you can see the show.

If you can only go to one place and looks or, go to Karnak. If you got time for two, go to Luxor temple. If you can get both of them right in the hour before sunset, when the evening light slants between the columns and casts an ominous pall over the faces of the seated deities, you're doing pretty...

You should use a guide to tell you about the nuances of the temple, otherwise you'll just be walking around, looking without understanding what you are looking at.

Saw Luxor Temple at night and the lights are amazing. It is a completely different feeling being there at night as it has a magical feel about it. It is also far less crowded in the evening and you are able to spend more time in each of the areas/rooms to really get a feel for this amazing temple.

A fascinating temple with an imposing entrance and a nice avenue of sphinxes (part of the avenue that goes to the temple of Karnak). Worth seeing the East wall on the outside....some of the stones have been restored upside down!! If you visit in the late afternoon, stay until it is dark. The temple is lit up and it is... More

I was fortunate to visit Luxor temple at night. The lighting was nicely done and did not take away from the spectacularly preserved columns and carvings. I loved the Sphinx avenue especially illuminated in yellow lights, it looked magical. So glad I didn't miss out on this. Definitely recommend a guide to show you and explain all the history and...

Lovely trip. All excellently well preserved. I was shocked to see that on the bus loads of organised tours a lot of the women were dressed skimpily which attracted negative attention. As a young western woman dressed conservatively I was treated with respect at all times.
