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.

Visited this during the day as part of our Nile Cruise, we also went back in the evening for the light show. This was our favourite light show

Historically, Karnak is one of the most important temples in Egypt. Please hire an experienced guide if you only have one opportunity to visit this great site in your lifetime.

One of the most memorable and interesting visits of a lifetime. We went in June around 10.30an and the heat was horrendous but that did not detract from the absolute stunning beauty of the temple. You can find some shade and our guide always led...More

Amazing. Well worth a guide. 80 for entry or 40 for a student, last ticket sales are 4.30pm and it closes around 5.30 for the light show.

Nice and amazing place. But considering that in July the weather is extremely HOT! and there's no place to hide from the sun in the temple.

It's astonishing to spend time at Karnak. It's preservation seems fresher that Roman ruins that are hundreds of years younger. The sense of place, colors and scale of the site are incredible. The Valley of the Kings has the amazing colors and arts of Egypt,...More

If you only visit one temple in this area - go to this one. Also worth having a guide to explain what everything is, and the history

The vast majority of Egyptians are bi-lingual, usually with English as the second language. It would be a good idea to learn a few basic words and phrases in Arabic, the locals appreciate you making the effort.

Sorry if some of the Luxor Temple's pictures (at night with the light effects) were mixed up with those of the Karnak Temple (visited during the day, since they close at 5 pm)
