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 Reviews & Ratings
Amazing place with a great example of how various religions have passed through the same footsteps. Make sure you have a guide to make sure you make the most of your trip, and take time to understand the various different times during history that impacted this amazing site.
Very impressive sight. Unfortunately didn't have as much time as I would have liked. Recommend having lots of small notes to tip the staff that show you "hidden" areas, more impressive hieroglyphics.
Words can't describe the majesty. To think that these ruins have been here for 3500+ years is incredible. Some of the granite still shines without maintenance. The hieroglyphics are expertly notched, like they were restored... but they weren't. An experience of a lifetime to see thurs UNESCO world heritage site.
A must visit in Luxor! Luxor temple is my favourite spot in Luxor. Your experience there will be better than what you see from photos. We spent around 1.5 hour here.
Super cool visiting this place at night. Steeped in history, apparently people used to live above this place because it was all buried beneath. Also nice to finally visit the real Luxor, not the Las Vegas one 😂
