Although the Luxor Temple was smaller than Karnak, it was still impressive with the large statues and obelisk in the front and throughout.

This is a great temple to visit in the evening, you can watch the sunset and then walk through the columns as they light up when it's dark. It's located near many of the shops and markets in town and very close to the Nile....More

Loved our visit to Luxor temple, around £5 each to get in. You also get a good view of the avenue of Sphinx that they're trying to recreate. Well worth a visit.
