This is truly amazing complex and left you speechless with the sheer magnitude of relics there are - treasures everywhere you see. Places to go visit you die.

A trip to Karnak Temple is a must, it's an awesome place and apparently by area the largest Religious site from the Ancient world. I would say this is more interesting and rewarding than the Pyramids at Giza/Cairo . As others have mentioned do go early if you can or late in the day as the light on the walls... More

I won't attempt to write anything of the history of this place, I'm sure a dedicated website can do a far better job. We didn't go with a tour, went by taxi. It cost under £10 to enter and was quite busy as it was Egyptian school holidays, but not too busy that you couldn't take time to stand and... More

We visited here in August of last year. It was incredibly hot but such an amazing place. It felt almost unreal. Would highly recommend visiting here.

The sound and light show was good as the audience are required to move to different areas during the show. Visiting in daylight was a whole new experience . The whole complex is amazing. What I did not enjoy are the somewhat aggressive touts outside the temple complex.

A trip to Karnak Temple is a must, it's an awesome place . We got there with our guide at 7.30 am and were amongst the only people there for ages, so do go early if you can. It is a true wonder with huge towering statues, carvings, obelisks, two hours was not enough, certainly worthy of another visit. We... More

It is sometimes not believable that some one nowadays can be so dedicated to build such this huge monuments, Pharos seemed to be more dedicated. a very huge temple that has been built for thousands of years and still as if it was built tens of hundred of years. it is speechless and the only way to have a good...
