Luxor Temple - Review

Yet another temple dedicated to the Gods Amun, Mut and Khonsu, the Luxor Temple was especially built to celebrate the Opet Festival, which is where all three Gods come together in a reunion. Two pharaohs of the land are said to have contributed the most to the temple’s architecture are Amenhotep III and Ramses II; the collection of the latter’s statues stands testimony to his contribution. In the olden times, there used to a 3km line of Sphinxes that used to run from the Luxor Temple, all the way to the Karnak Temple. If you get a chance, catch the sound and light show held at the Temple after hours!

  • Luxor Temple one of my favorite sites to look around, I was the first tourist on site, watch up blood sucker , trying to show you the place & them want money, even carrier drivers & taxi. I'm a solo tourist & got happy to see the site by myself expend 2 hrs & then walk to Karnak temple 2 miles.. use your phone GPS no matter if you walk or someone try to scam you with a horse ride.

  • Luxor temple is a large ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city . In Luxor there are several great temples on the east and west banks. One of the most important monuments in the world, it describes a lot of royal procedures, attitudes and habits in the different ceremonies. It connects to the Karnak temple with road called AL kebash road. around the temple you will find a lot of shops, market, hotels, restaurants and it near the railway station.

  • We did a day trip from Cairo (cheap flights on Egypt Air) and whilst it was pretty exhausting, it was absolutely worthwhile. It's impossible to see everything Egypt has to offer in a week, but if you only do Cairo and Luxor, I think you get a good cross section. We used EMO Tours who planned our schedule based on our guidance, which was really successful and would recommend them without hesitation

  • This is must have if you are visiting Egypt. Wonderful place with amazing history, there are even leftover colours on some of the hieroglyphs. The weather in Luxor is extremely hot so better prepare yourself with a hat and bottle of water.

  • An ancient temple slightly different than the others. There is a church and mosque on site so three religions harmoniously together. Much smaller temple. Restoration progressing in the back areas. Avenue of the Sphinx is closed for restoration. About 5$ entrance fee. Cool to stand where the pharaohs stood. The “guards” are annoying just like the other places.
