The temples of Karnak and Luxor are connected with the avenue of the sphinxes and it looks impressive. Not only the precision and detail but how the whole plays into the environment. What a sight!

This avenue connects the teo main temples in Luxor, namely the Luxor temple, and Karnak temple. It is not a thorough passage now, due to encroachments, but the small stretch at Luxor temple gives an idea about it.

The Avenue of the Sphinx is being linked as it was hundreds of years ago. From Karnak to Luxor, only problem is a lot of people live above the buried sphinx so they will be moved. Walking along the Avenue makes you feel regal. Look at the heads and take your time.

The Avenue of Sphinxes is near completion but the lack of funds and tourism has delayed the final piece - visit and be thrilled

This is a very nice avenue that connects the temples of Karnak and Luxor. It is easy to walk and visit. It is long. I recommend to walk through it at night. It is quiet, peaceful, and very nice as the Sphinxes are illuminated. The temperature is also better. We tried during the day but it was hot.

I can remember 20 years ago, there was no platform before the Avenue of Sphinxes... nowadays, I noticed there is one.

The Avenue of the Sphinxes is a long term restoration project. Ultimately it will run between Karnak and Luxor. Even unfinished, it is an impressive sight. Give it enough time to snap a few pictures, imagine what it looked like new, and move on

As of the time of our visit, you couldn't walk the whole 3km length of the avenue, but you could see parts. There i a plan to clean it all up and open it up for pedestrians to walk the full 3 KM between the temples of Karnak and Luxor... I cant wait for that!
