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.

I was amazed visiting the temple of karnak, it was what i liked most about luxor, the temple is huge and have massive structures, very well conserved and the history behind will amaze you. It is worth the whole trip to luxor.

No doubt one of the most interesting and historically important places on earth for artefacts and history. This beats anything that Cairo has to offer and is well worth the visit. Incredible images and history can be obtained with any visit!

Do the tour with a good guide (you can find them on line with recommendations). Then go back yourself one night to the evening light show.

Another one of Luxor's highlights. The architecture here is amazing, and the history associated with it is even more impressive. Having a guide with you is nice, because they are informative, but I felt a bit rushed when I wanted to wander around taking photos....More

It is hard to describe the feeling when you enter the Karnak Temple in Luxor. The size and scale of this structure is incredible. I would rate it higher than Pyramids of Giza. Dont miss it
