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.

Can not really explain how great the temples are here in Luxor.. One of those experiences you need to experience yourself. Kids were mesmerized by everything. So were the adults.

This is one of the most beautiful and well preserved temples in Luxor. It is quite large and to be standing in front of the large structure is quite a thrill.

This was *the* sight of Luxor to me. It’s stunning to wander around the amazingly preserved, gigantic ruins that are millennia-old. Beautiful statues and hieroglyphics. Worth going very early to avoid the heat and crowds.
