The scale of Karnak is amazing. I got goosebumps as you walk through the facade and into the temple. Its nit possible in photos to capture the scale of Karnak. Look around, immerse yourself and appreciate the genius behind the temples.

Karnak Temple provides great insights into the old kingdom capitol of Egypt, then called Thebes. Many of the colossal works of art have been painstakingly restored, and sometimes provide inaccurate representations of this once great civilization. Nevertheless, one can spend hours wandering through the temple...More

Worth every penny. Unbelievable monuments, statues and artwork, really well preserved. Note: if you bring a student card all entrances are half the price.

The area is so huge and so many things to see ... Queen Hatshepsut's obelisk - loved the most. Amun Ra's temple, other places .. at least one needs 2 hours to see this wonderland. This is in Luxor East bank.

This is ticking off my bucket list and well worth it for that. It is amazing how these inscriptions and some of the colours have stood the test of time. A must if you can.

It is a huge complex of temples with the last construction left incomplete. There are a lot of well preserved statues. There were columns with carvings and original colours. There were paintings on the roofs as well. There was a nilometer in the temple.
