I went to an Opera performance of Aida here in 1989 or so, it was amazing to be in this area at night with it all lit up and period costume every where. What an amazing period of human history.

Really cool to image the the 400 Sphinxes from Karnak to Luxor back in the day. What is left is in front of Luxor Temple.

You can only view from the street as they are still excavating the site. As i understand from the guide, some of the buildings have to be torn down or moved. But what a sight to see.

Opposite the Luxor Temple. Can be accessed with the same ticket. Is nice to visit during daytime or night. Gives an idea of how it must have been at Ancient Egypt.

As the entrance to the temples, the lion statues are fantastic. You really feel like you are in the land of the pharaohs.

To think theses Sphinxes are thousands of years old and still standing as magnificently as they do. You can't help but wonder at the history they have borne silent witness to. A truly remarkable place.

The Avenue of Sphinxes is one of the most important archaeological and religious paths in Luxor, its grandeur delight. I can imagine the time of connection with Karnak how magnificent it was. It was the location of important religious ceremonies in ancient times.
