Worth a visit but found the area rather busy and bothered by people trying to sell stuff. Sphinx have been restored in some cases but still good to see

If you want to see real civilization that is not based on Artificial Intelligence but actual science visiting Egypt becomes a must. Avenue of Sphinxes is just one amazing attraction but you have a million more to look for.

Imagine seeing the Avenue of Sphinxes when it was complete. It was not only be stunning but jaw dropping. All these work of art displayed side by side and across each other from Karnak to Luxor. Simply Amazing.

The Avenue of Sphinxes is an ancient Egyptian roadway that connected the Temples of Luxor and Karnak. Portions of it have been uncovered and is in relatively good condition. The entire site has yet to be unearthed, but it can be seen in different areas of luxor and is well worth exploring.

So much potential going to waste and being destroyed by encroaching development. Glad I saw it when I did as I do not expect much to change
