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.

Amazing scale in both space and time... beautiful and impressive temple... must see! The huge statues, the gigantic columns, the obelisk, all the base-reliefs and mural pictures going back thousands of years... are mind blowing.

Did a private tour guide of the temple. Well worth the money. 3 of us plus guide. He was thorough and gave us personal time at the end to wander and take more pics. So worth seeing. History is phenomenal. We were in awe.
