Karnak has got to be the best place I saw during my study tour to Egypt. It's absolutely majestic and well excavated and preserved. In places the paint on the reliefs seems merely a few hundred years old instead of thousands of years. It's easy...More

The Temple of Amun was definitely one of the most magnificent Egyptian accomplishments we experienced during our stay in Luxor. Located within the Temple of Karnak area, it is a very dynamic architectural wonder. Definitely a must see attraction while in Luxor.

The Temple of Amun reveres him, his wife, & his son if I remember correctly. It is nearby the larger Karnak complex. It is also close to the Nile.

You can ignore the sellers and walk. Lots of hassle if you want to buy one thing for a family, better to just walk and know what you want!

The temple is on two axes West to East as you come in, and North to South with the Open Air Museum to the North and the Khonsu temple on the south.The hypostyle hall makes you feel like an ant.
