The scale of Karnak is amazing.
I got goosebumps as you walk through the facade and into the temple.
Its nit possible in photos to capture the scale of Karnak.
Look around, immerse yourself and appreciate the genius behind the temples.
The size of this temple area is like 200 acres so to see it at one time would be difficult. The main area is really interesting, especially the sphinx with ram heads only place I saw this. When you are walking around there are folks...More
Karnak Temple provides great insights into the old kingdom capitol of Egypt, then called Thebes. Many of the colossal works of art have been painstakingly restored, and sometimes provide inaccurate representations of this once great civilization. Nevertheless, one can spend hours wandering through the temple...More

The area is so huge and so many things to see ... Queen Hatshepsut's obelisk - loved the most. Amun Ra's temple, other places .. at least one needs 2 hours to see this wonderland. This is in Luxor East bank.
The Temple of Karnak is breath-taking. We have visited a lot of temples in Egypt, but Karnak Temple was our favourite by far. The sheer size and scale of it is awe-inspiring. The history behind it is fascinating. We had a tour guide with us...More

It is a huge complex of temples with the last construction left incomplete. There are a lot of well preserved statues. There were columns with carvings and original colours. There were paintings on the roofs as well. There was a nilometer in the temple.

Hi Stacey. Yes, it will be possible to access the Karnak Temple with with a stroller, but please be advised it's a cobblestone pavement, so not so even by the most part. When I was there, I've seen wheel-chairs being used... More
Hi Stacey. Yes, it will be possible to access the Karnak Temple with with a stroller, but please be advised it's a cobblestone pavement, so not so even by the most part. When I was there, I've seen wheel-chairs being used, so should be fine for a push-chair too, I guess. I won't advise carry on the little ones - the distances in Egypt are vast - we walked 10km straight on an "average" full-day tour! Just make sure to use sunscreen and hats as the shade is sparse over there - after all, you're somewhat in the desert!
