The Pyramids, the Coloseum, the Accropolis... IMHO these places are nothing compared to Karnak! The way this place was built is beyond imagination. If you don't believe in Alien Visitations, Karnak will change your mind. The precise locations and measurements of the series of huge columns of solid stone could not be duplicated today even with all of our new... More

Great historical site to visit! Beware, local Egyptian workers at the site ask you if you want your picture taken with your own camera and then ask you for money after. Local shops sell water and soda in the hot weather. You must barter for a good price on everything you buy.

It is beautiful big temples in Luxor. I recommend it to anyone to visit Luxor; you should go visit Karnak Temple.

We toured the site right before it closed (aim for an hour before it closes) and had the place much to ourselves. We could tour without the crowds and take pictures without lots of people in them. You will want to see the Holy of Holies and the Sacred Lake and the sacred Scarab and obelisks and the amazing Hypostyle... More

Visited the temple at Karnak as one of many attractions visited in Luxor. The temple is amazing and not to be missed. Its hard to take in the sheer size of the site, and its age. Most artifacts are very well preserved considering how lengthy have been in situ. A word of advice, visit as early as possible in the... More

We had such a great time exploring Karnak. Put this on your bucket list. The history and beauty of this temple is something that pictures can not do justice to.
