A must and most explored place in Luxor!!

Do visit, people confuse it with Luxor temple sometimes, but ask for Karnak (pronouced as karnaaak, when asking in Arabic)

Many religions use the word Amen or Ameen at the end of their prayers. Surprisingly the word has a direct reference to the Egyptian god Amen, or Amun, the chief deity of Karnak. The temple of Karnak being the largest ancient temple in the world was “the Vatican” or "Mecca" of Egyptian religion for two thousand years and thus can... More

Nobody never heard about that temple. A large (empty) parking lot leads towards this colossus. In the visitors hall one can oversee a complete scale model of the temple. We've been here so many times and always come back to admire. It took the Egyptians many centuries to build, rebuild and restore the complex. A never ending job. Old materials... More

To see this avenue of sphinxes leading into the temple and all the while surrounded by modern Cairo is quite a site, The temple was lit up as we finished our tour it definitely looks better at night.

Visited Karnak temple whilst on holiday in Luxor, what an amazing place to spend a few hrs. The site is huge and costs £80 Egyptian to enter. You will be offered guides which I didn't take but they were charging £20egyptian. ( to start with) on exit there are cafes and shops to buy souvenirs and pop/water.

This is an awesome empire, you are being taken back in time, it sure gets you questioning your existence. aahing and oohing, looking at the mighty tall pillars of lotuses, once decorated in Lapis lazuli. then you get to sit on chairs, hear listen and be in awe from the ponds, to the story of the Opet festival.

We visited in April 2016 and were in awe of the vast array of artifacts and architecture in Karnak. The obelisks and carvings are preserved incredibly, showing a real insight into the history of the rulers in this area.
