How can you say the most amazing things about a place so far away, there are no words and yet there are not enough words to express how amazing it was for us.

It was weird to see that a church and a mosque have been built on top of it. I did not like that at all.

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.

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
