It was part of our Luxor to Aswan cruise on the Nile. A trip of a lifetime, a must for all people, a step back in history.

Amazing experience at Karnak temple, the second hall with all the pillars are so worth visiting, they really make you feel tiny. We went there one hour and a half before sunset and it was amazing to see the sun coming down and the lights while in the temple.

The light show was ok, but the lighting for photography at night was awesome for photos. I went in the night for the show and again in the day and it was a great combination.

Karnak temple in Luxor - Egypt. The most important historical monument in Egypt after the Pyramids of Giza. Temples group in one place in the city of Luxor, the Temple of Amun-Re, the Temple of Mout , the Temple of Khonsu and the number of chapels.. A great history and is full of interesting events.

This temple is amazing. It's unbelievable so much of it has survived. It's incredible that the original color remains in so many places that were less affected by the elements. A must-see.
