Walk in the footsteps of ancient Egyptians at Luxor Temple, a World Heritage Site constructed some time around 1400 BCE. The large sandstone temples, granite monoliths, and giant colossi were designed to celebrate the idea of pharaohs as kings and gods, rather than any particular god or individual pharaoh. As you pass through the vast site, notice the different additions made by non-Egyptian civilizations--special highlights include Roman murals and a mosque.

This temple gives you an opportunity to visit it at night, which gives you an incredible experience with the lighting and pharaohs details more »
Visited many years ago and loved it. Returning now after such hard times have befallen the country the magnificent looks sad and dusty unlike Karnak. Unable to walk down the Avenue of the Sphinxes... more »
Awesome place for every one that likes the history and the Egyptian history. Full of amazing status and builds. Just make sure you bring a cap or a hat with you because the sun is not that cool I that place.
An exceptional ancient Egyptian gem of a temple! You live a very touching art presenting the affectionate unity of the north & south of the Pharaoh's land, parallel to their mighty force, presented in taking over their Hittite enemy prisoners... A MUST SEE...
