The karnak temple is one the distinguished identifying marks of Luxor in Egypt, where each of consecutive kings tried to make his temple most magnificent so as to be so distinguished than his predecessor, so the Karnak temples changed to a complete guide and collection showing the development stages of ancient Egyptian art and distinguished pharaonic architecture.

The Temple of Karnak was a very neat experience, and one that I believe is a "must" when visiting Luxor. It was not overly crowded in March, and evidently the light show at night was running as well (though we didn't stay for that). I would definitely budget at least 1.5-2 hours to wander through this expansive temple complex while... More

You will feel so little between those stunning pillar that have resisted thousands of years. Try to feel the special energy of the place and let the history transport you in the ancient times. They say brings luck if you're completing the ritual around the scarab, so maybe you should want to try this as well.

This temple has a lot of different histories and I would definitely recommend that it be visited. Schedule at least 5 hours if you would like to see some detail. It is big and impressive.

This was the last place I went during my private day tour in Luxor and it was my favorite one with a lot of breathtaking sights. The amount of architecture and sphinxes still in tact are amazing compared to the other sites in Luxor and their sizes and the intricate details are just mesmerizing. When you walk into the temple...

As you'd expect from a world renowned temple this doesn't disappoint. We arrived early, just after 6am and had the place to ourselves for over an hour. Big place so take your time walking around. Buy water before you enter as none on the inside. Kids loved it too!

While I am sad for Egypt that tourism has dropped so significantly, the good news is that the sites await and they are relatively peaceful. Yes, there were tourists, a few groups, but the Temple of Karnak was awe-inspiring.
