This open air museum is within the grounds of Karnak Temple but is a fabulous place to walk around or simply sit beneath the trees and get away from the crowds. It's well worth visiting and you access it shortly after walking through the entrance...More

The ancient Egyptians built to impress and after enduring thousands of years of weather and neglect, these buildings, steles and statues still spark wonder. Do take a guided tour so you will know what you are seeing and its significance. We saw plenty of men...More

Hand out, this the place that makes any other temple shy! The majestic columns are of incredible size, and number! The sculptures, wall engravings, everything... just very unique.. This place was built over almost 2000 years, just saying 😊

The complex at Karnak was amazing! Our Egyptologist was excellent & explained the various building phases really bringing ancient Luxor to life. The sheer size and number of the temple columns boggle the senses! Highly recommended as a must see on your Egyptian tour.
