Reviewed November 11, 2013

There is not much here you will not be impressed about. The avenue of Sphinxes sets a scene where your imagination is likely to wander and it is very easy standing here to imagine the possesions walking by. Remember as always to bring water

“luxor sphinxes”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

the avenue of the sphinxes begin at luxor temple and continue ,
when they are all unearthed up to the karnak temple complex.
the sphinxes are about three metres high on their bases, and are
approx. ten metres appart, the ones at luxor temple have human
faces, the same as the great sphinx, the others have mainy rams
heads, I do not know how many there are but at least one hundred are on display with many more to be positioned on their
plinths as the are restored.

“new attraction”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

It was both nice seeing this excavation in process and sad that it is being delayed by the troubles in Egypt at the moment. It has also been a shock to some of the inhabitants of Luxor to have their homes and businesses compulsorily bought for this project
