Explore one of The world's largest Temples and the intact Luxor Temple from 1500 BC


Start your day with a visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak 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. At the rear of the complex you will find the sacred lake where centuries ago pharaohs and their offerings to the gods were purified. After a tour of the complex, you will have additional free time to explore at leisure. Continue to Luxor Temple which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a two-kilometer long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple.

Itinerary

I will pick you up in the morning to visit the famous Karnak temple the largest place of worship ever built. Its ancient name Ipet-isut means "the most sacred of places. " The temple, or, more correctly, the complex of temples, was built over more than two thousand years by generation after generation of pharaohs. Within the complex, the great "Hypostyle Hall" is an incredible forest of giant pillars. Then continue the tour to visit the majestic Luxor temple which was built by Amenhotep III and Ramses II for ritual and dedicated to the god Amun. Luxor temple is among the most beautiful Temples in Egypt built. Lunch during the Tour can be arranged upon request.
If you want to spend The evening outside your Hotel , you can enrich your evening by attending the sound and light show by Karnak Temple. it is in every night so booking can be arranged
