Unless you go hete yourself you will never be able to fully grasp the reason why a leader like Alexander wanted to prove to all and sunder that he had Egyptian dna! Take enough time to walk here and look at the hyrogryphics and objects recovered!

Luxor temple is of great historical importance. It's smaller than karnack temple yet still huge. Don't visit in summers and make sure to carry food water and covered body if you dint want sun burns ( another reason is presence of creeps).

Great Temple with lots of interesting scultures. It is worth the visit there if you are in the south of egypt. Trip from Cairo lasts 16 hours by train.

This is a beautiful temple and a must see when visiting Egypt. The hieroglyphs are amazing. Our tour guide from Your Egypt Tours did a fantastic job teaching us about the temple.
