Overview

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.

Just on the river bank this is best seen at night as it's very well illuminated. As normal in Egypt, there's plenty of people peddling tat.
