we went here after an early morning camel ride. as it was early there wasn't many people there and we had a nice leisurely walk around.
the place is just so beautiful. While we were there we got chatting to a teacher who was helping with the renovations and he told us some things around its history which was good.

This temple to the god Amun is not like Karnak but still has a wonderful entrance , a lined avenue of statues, although the tourists entrance is at the obilisk into the temple proper, the matching obilisk gifted to Paris,France in 1836.
This layout is full of mini temples and statues with murals in relief on some of the inner walls. The complex is still being restored and some areas were not open to us on our visit. Well worth a visit and great to do the two temples, Karnak and Luxor in a morning, a short taxi ride apart.

I thought the Temples of Karnak were amazing and well preserved, the Luxor Temples are even better, this is definitely a must place to visit, quite easy to do Karnak & Luxor in the same day as they are not far apart.

Although smaller than Karnak Temple, this is so worth visiting. In fact because it is smaller it is easier to take in all the details, perhaps because it is not so overwhelming. Not only do you have wonderful Egyptian drawings and statues, such as a statue of King Tut and his wife, but also the drawings depicting Christianity in the area that was used in later years as a church and the Mosque that was built and is still used today. Not only this but the avenue of Sphinxes leading of is amazing in it's own right. We drove past the temple on the way to our hotel on the first day and to see it lit up was a wonderful sight.
