Avenue of Sphinx, it is real eye opener do not miss out, put this on your list to come and see. And take a guided tour you need a few hours to get around so take plenty of water with you on very hot days

Avenue of Sphinxes is a very long avenue that stretches from Karnak templ to Luxor temple. You will see it when you visit either temple.

Many many more statues being excavated and repaired along the avenue. Fantastic to see now but I want to see it again when the work is fully complete too, and walk the avenue between the temples

The avenue stretches for three miles between Luxor and Karnak temples, so far only the start has been recovered and excavated but the current Governor has stated his intention to restore this ceremonial avenue, it will be awesome when it's completed

This is at luxor temple just past the entrance, you can just keep watching and admiring it as it has quite a long stretch of statues.

It's at the entrance of Karnak temple and at the side of Luxor temple that facing Karnak temple. Amazing lighting at Luxor temple in night. So definitely worth to go at night but luxor temple closed relatively early in night and the operating timing changed
