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 Tour Reviews
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
Awesome experience! Great site! Filled with peoples from all over the world. Huge area. Huge monuments. Great back stories. Alhamdulillah for the opportunity to be here.
Interested in ancient Egypt history, especially the New Kingdom era? This is a must visit. You have to go inside. Don't be tempted by the view of the temple from the Nile bank. Going inside is much more fun. Please go with a guide, not a book.
Although Karnak takes all the attention in Luxor, I was much more impressed with Luxor Temple. These ruins are huge and gorgeous. The fact we can be there at sunset and enjoy the evening was a huge plus. I heard there's Light&Sound in Karnak at night, but there was a festival going there so perhaps my view would be different had I been. Luxor Temple is beautifully lit at night, highly recommended!
Nice place to visit when in Luxor. Lighting at night make the place look great. Entry fee required to enter the temple premises. It can very well seen from outside too.
