About Luxor Temple, Luxor

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!

  • This historical place is a must see for everybody who wants to understand where human civilization partly comes from or at least partly began. Walking through the area and feeling history catching your breath I t is amazing and unbelievable how human beings have been able to build cities, temples and structures like this without the machines we have today. Looking back sometimes helps us further.

  • Very interesting and historical place. Go in the evening so that you can enjoy both day light and after sunset this place is lit by artificial lights which makes it beautiful.

  • Unbelievable artisan work with great depiction of history. Massive and magnifique can describe this place. Can't do justice in few hours. Both day and all lit temple have great appeal.

  • If you are a traveler and like watching new places and meet new people you have to visit Egypt specially Aswan & Luxor Country is very safe for all foreigners Wonderful temples , tombs and museums Best time in the winter season from October till January Nile cruse between aswan & Luxor is a great option than hotels

  • جميل جدا. حاجه رائعه وفخامة. ولكن ياريت يحطوا لنا بعض الارشادات والمعلومات. علشان نعرف نقرأها. لأن الإنسان العادى اللى مش دارس آثار. بيكون صعب عليه معرفة مايشتهدة. وبرجاء خاص. (ارحمونا من المرشدين اللى بالفوائد اى حكايات ملهاش دعوة بالحقيقه).
