You can feel the history at Karnak. The ancient Kings and queens come to life. It is unbelievable how they managed to erect the magnificent pillars thousands of years ago. Amazing

It was my favorite sight to visit in Luxor, we went to the sound and light show. It's kitchy but fun, and looks awesome when lit up.

Great seeing it at night at the sound and light show. Much better than the sound & light show at Philae Temple in Aswan.
