Stunning Ancient Monument

Amazing to see the craft and detail of Ancient Egyptian stone work. Sheer size and majesty of some of the statues and columns were unforgettable.

WOW!! Simply amazing, so much to take in it's overwhelming. Incredible to believe that these were built by man so long ago. If you are going to Luxor you must visit this site.

It surpassed all my expectations. The architecture is incredible, backdrop is majestic and there is so much to experience and take in... I recommend going around sunset time to see the sunset on the bike behind it, and see the beauty of the temple in both day and night.
