“truly stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

combined with the 3km avenue of sphinx (parts of which are still being excavated) this is one of my favourite sites in Egypt - but PLEASE make sure you go when it's dark, it really is breath-taking with the excellent lighting.

“Legacy Of Luxor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Luxor Temple or The Temple of Amun-Ra is more than 3000 years old and was completed under the direction of the famous Rameses II. Consequently it is not surprising to find two enormous statues of the said Ramses II guarding the entrance to the temple. On the square in front of the entrance is a 25 metre high obelisk, the surviving member of a pair, the other was taken to Paris where it was placed in the Place de la Concorde. Through the entrance is the court of Rameses II with its rows of well preserved columns and a magnificent seated statue of the man himself. There are more colonnades, courtyards, vestibules and sanctuaries, as you walk through the site to the last and most sacred sanctuary. A wonderful inspiring place, a great photo opportunity and a must see on a visit to Luxor.

“Facinating temple and ruins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Great time wandering around soaking up the history and atmosphere, still don’t understand how the built these temples. Recommend the site to anyone.
Watch out for the scams in the temple grounds, guides hanging around in the grounds will point to show the best photo shots and then demand money, don't talk to them or ask a question or allow them to show you, they will demand money. After being in Luxor a day we realised that to save our wallet, don’t talk to any locals, they all expect money for anything. Even on leaving at the airport and going through passport control the official held out his hand for payment !
