“Now, this is amazing!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

I thought this was going to be a few dozen sphinxes at the approach to the temple but, incredibly, there were three KM of them! Some sphinx manufacturer won a monster contract! This attraction is simply an aside, however, to the two temples.

“lovely carvings”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The sight of the rows of sphinxes is most unusual. They are mostly still in good repair and recognisable and provide a welcome to the temple at Karnak.

“Under restoration - will probably be v impressive in years to come”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This sphinx lined road used to link Karnak temple with Luxor temple. It is currently being restored so will probably be much better in the future. You didn't have to make a special trip to see it as you pass by parts of it when travelling through Luxor.

“Intersesting”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

This looks remarkable but they are still in the proces of restoring it. It is part of the Luxor Temple tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable

“not to be missed”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Calm and each sphinx has different features, hassle free walk to end worth seeing before entering Luxor temple
