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.

  • Absolutely amazing Temple. Not as big as Karnak, but nicely in the city center of Luxor. The avenue with Sphinx's is amazing. Currently undergoing restoration, but still looks amazing. The temple is a mixture of Egyptian, Roman, Christian, and Muslim. Amazing statues of Ramses are visible here. Wow
  • One of the magnificent pieces of history that you would ever see in your entire life. Everybody should visit it once in a lifetime. A solid representation of the Entient Egyptian Commitment, Dedication and Skill.
