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.

You can spend hours walking around here and still not see everything. Make sure you have plenty of water and watchout for the people pointing out photo spots and hassling you for money. The sound and light show is a must.

#2 favorite place in Luxor to visit after the Valley of Kings, with Hatshepsut Temple right behind. Loved the 134 pillars, and the engravings are so incredibly preserved. Can't miss it!

This temple is almost ruined, but they have build it again under the sweet name of ''restoration''. In the temple Egyptians have joined all the possible things together, some time going out of the symmetry.Still it is very huge structure, at ancient time it must have been glorious.

The pharaohs’ capital at the height of their power. I now understand why it has been called the world's greatest open air museum. The view of the Nile west bank is amazing!! If you visit Luxor, make sure you don't miss it!
