As are many sites in Egypt, this avenue is amazing. I can't image the work that went into this avenue. It may have been one of the first assembly line productions in history... read more

As are many sites in Egypt, this avenue is amazing. I can't image the work that went into this avenue. It may have been one of the first assembly line productions in history. Egypt is great, but don't go without a guide for many reasons including knowledge and safety. We used Goshen Travel Egypt and were very pleased.

The sphinxes in here are not that huge. But the name tells you. It is a wonderful experience to see the row of so many sphinxes and walk all the way down.

Everywhere you go in this stunning country just makes you say 'wow'. This is no exception ......it is a long avenue of Sphinxes. We thoroughly enjoyed just walking among them - try it, you won't be disappointed!

See it for the sheer beauty of the pathway...an avenue unique in itself. The Egyptian Government is doing a fine job in unearthing the entire avenue...though work remains incomplete.

Good to see the avenue with the Sphinxes - incredible to think that the sphinxes stretched from the Karnak Temple to Luxor Temple quite a feet for those years.

The Avenue of the Sphinxes run between Luxor temple and Karnak temple and is by no means complete. The Egyptian government is in the process of uncovering the avenue but a few buildings remain (like 2 churches!) this seem to have come to a halt since the revolution a few years ago. You can see the avenue from both temples... More

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
