The magnificent temple complex of Karnak should be rated as one of the wonders. It is vast and to see it thoroughly would take weeks - so do your homework and enjoy it!

Just the grandeur of the complex totally captivates you. Went for the night show too which was breathtaking. The columns and the obelisks and just immersing oneself in the temple one can feel what it must have been thousands of years ago. Must visit.

The temple is located not far away from the Cruise or Luxor temple. It is advised to visit in the evening and Light and sound show is not to be missed

Go with a guide to get the most out of this temple complex, build over many years by a long list of kings. There is a lot of restoration work underway here.

Very impressive, a must see when you are in Egypt. We had an excellent guide with us that could explain some details you never find on your own. I would suggest to have some more signs and explanations. It would make the visit even better.

A must see at Luxor. the temple area is huge and includes obelisks and a courtyard of 130 huge columns. Still being restored, but most of the area is free of scaffolding.

Too many others have written about this. One can't come to Luxor without visiting this temple. Do it by day....and not for the Sound & Light show.
