We attended the Light show at night and loved being able view the detail of the hieroglyphs from the contrast of dark and light. It was also a nice way to avoid the heat of the day.

the Temple of Karnak coves over sixty acres and the architecture the ancient Egyptians constructed is amazing. To know the ancients accomplished all this with primitive tools makes one wonder what they could accomplish with today's tools. To see stone statues of Ramsees still standing and some of the original colors or the drawings and carvings is awe inspiring. This... More

This is an impressive temple, especially the columns. Avoid the men who try to show you around for a tip. They like to touch the foreign women. Not cool! And make sure that you get the right amount of change back after you pay for your ticket. I did not really like the light show. It was overpriced and seemed... More

This temple is a must see if you visit Luxor, truly amazing sight. One wonders how on earth could they erect some of these columns in the temple, so tall straight and perfect. The sound and light show in the evening can not be missed a spine chilling experience. If you miss this place shame on you.

2000 plus years and it is still awe inspiring and a wonder of the world. We went during the day and for the night show as well. Seeing it during the day helps when you see it at night for the light show. As your mind wanders imagining what it must have been like, you are truly amazed. One thing... More

I visited Karnak twice in one day: during the afternoon as part of a tour and then that night for the light and sound show. The day visit was fine (but so hot) to see the huge, spectacular temple complex. My night visit was more comfortable, but the "show" was very disappointing.

Words can't describe the way I felt when I walked through the entrance into this amazing place. It's a "must see" if you're anywhere near the area. I'd definitely recommend the sound and light show :-) One of the best experiences of my life.
