She was responsible for one of the most prosperous periods in the country but her successors... More

I imagined myself walking these locatioms years ago, it was that breathtaking. There is a familar feeling about this location that sort of relaxes you so you spend time noticing small details about the images, Real nice.

It's a beautiful place to visit. Two third of the world's monuments and antiques are I. Egypt. It was amazing to see them first hand.

The temple is full of history. You can visit the temple both day or night. They have a beautiful sound & light show that explains the history of the place in a delightful way.

Visited Karnak Temple on our holiday in Hurghada, Egypt. Only option form here to Luxor is by road and the journey is about 3/3.5 hours long. Karnak Temple is a beautiful historic site and the trip was 'made' by the guide from the company we used. Well worth the visit and would recommend the Temple to everyone.

Carnac temple is the temple of the temple. The roots of all. Built by many Pharaoh through time. It s a proof that humans can make great things.

I can't describe how great this place is. Before you even enter the first courtyard, the outer wall takes your breath away. Don't go inside just yet - walk around the wall on the left and you'll find an entire section of beautiful imagery all along the other walls. I could have spent 3+ hours here exploring the numbers of... More

Wow, what an amazing place to visit in the (cool) evening. The Temple is light up and dramatic in a way that none of the other Egyptian temples are. Luxor takes wonderful care of this site and they're working on extending the walk of sphinx's to the original length of many kilometers.
