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.

This temple complex is vast! Recommended duration of visit is at least 3 hours. I'd advise interested visitors to do some homework/research before coming here or just bring a guide. Unfortunately, like all other attractions in Luxor, it's not devoid of hagglers & hustlers.

This place is rich in history! No words are enough to describe the beauty of this place. Some colors were preserved as they were too high to be flooded. We had Khaled as our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. He studied hieroglyphics extra...More

I used a horse carriage for 10 Egyptian pounds to get to Karnak from Luxor temple (Dec 2017). You can either choose that or a taxi or simply walk, it's not more than 3km walk by the river nile.

Depends on the time you have to spend in Egypt. We took time to visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, and with so much to see we needed to squeeze in things when we could. Enjoy.
