The Avenue of ram headed sphinxes originally linked Luxor temple with Karnak. The Egyptians have been busy escavating the avenue from under Luxor, having to demolish houses to unearth the sphinxes beneath. It’s an amazing piece of work that will stretch for 3 km. You...More

We walked quite a long distance along the side of the Avenue of Sphinxes but you cannot access it, which is a disappointment. It’s also much longer than it looks.

It is amazing to think how this must have looked thousands of years ago. What an avenue for the Pharos to use as they are carried from Karnak to Luxor during their annual celebration. This is another piece of history that helps explain the power...More

We visited via the luxor temple and the area is roped off. Does certainly look to be an amazing avenue. Many of the sphinxes are damaged.

These beautiful and majestic statues are like a gateway into another world. I was very impressed with these Sphinxes and they are still excavating more!

An incredible sight that when completed, you will have two km's of Sphinxes between Karnat & Luxor temples that you can walk. It is a sight now but when it's finished, WOW

The avenue of the Sphinx is 1.2 miles long. Those closer to the Luxor temple are in better shape since they were more recently uncovered. It's hard to imagine how much work it take to do all this. You can not get very close to...More

We could not walk the avenue, it was closed off for renovation. We could just see it from Luxor Temple. I wish we could have walked it to Karnak.
