the most impressive temples in Upper Egypt


exploring the East Bank of Luxor to see two of the most impressive temples in Upper Egypt - Karnak and Luxor. Start your day with a visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as I will explain how the massive facade was constructed. you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even larger. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3, 000 years. Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns towering above you like an ancient forest. Luxor Temple survived Nile floods, foreign invasion and thousands of years exposed to the elements. A pure Egyptian temple.
