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.

Beautiful, can't believe paint that is thousands of years old is still vibrant now. Go early can get VERY crowded. Get a recommended tour guide without one there is too much to take in. Evening light show was disappointing

If you do one thing in your life don't miss this. Yes it's not a fun fair but it is out of this world. Where you can personally touch history.

Depends on the time you have to spend in Egypt. We took time to visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, and with so much to see we needed to squeeze in things when we could. Enjoy.
