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!

  • 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.

  • This one of the most beautiful temples in Egypt! Visit post sunset, stay from the dusk till night casts in. The structures and the ruins are amazing in the light. Don’t miss the open air museum, it really helps understand the dynasties arranged chronologically.

  • An important site in ancient times, easy to visit and lots of interest. Take your own drinks. Ongoing work means that there is always something to see.
