A lot of restoration going on by USAID and University of Chicago. This temple is physically adjacent to a mosque built on top of a Coptic church. In tact statues and obelisks, columns both carved and in relief. Easy to walk.
Really enjoyed this site, maybe not quite as grand as Luxor but I found interesting that the different faiths defaced the temples over the centuries, first the Christians, then the Muslims, None of that takes away from it, just makes it more interesting.

I stayed in west bank and after taking a hire boat came to Luxor temple. It was night time and not felt very comfortable amidst hawkers, high volume loudspeakers from a function nearby finding out the entrance. A Group tour company cutting down the queue...More
Luxor Temple is a must-see when in Luxor. Of course, Valley of the Kings is the most impressive site, but Kranak and Luxor Temples are very high on the list. Luxor Temple even has carvings by Alexander the Great from when he ruled over Egypt....More

Both are pretty close and easily be covered in a single day. But from my point of view, Karnak is way more impressive. Not only bcoz it's sheer size, but also because of the generation of art and culture depicted in its walls. Egypt trip is incomplete without visiting Karnak.
On the other hand, Luxor Temple is smaller than Karnak. But it's definitely large enough to mesmerize. Better visit it after dawn. The light show at Luxor Temple is overwhelming. Because of its easy accessibility, it can better be visited at evening.
