Great place to see and visit. It does cover an expansive area. If you visit on a hot day it feels even hotter as the stone radiates the heat so take plenty of water. There is a small bizarre also which is full of non genuine Egyptian products

Stunning beyond words! This is Egypt. I loved this. So much to see and learn. You cannot come to Luxor without coming here.

Fascinating area, very quiet so you can browse at your leisure. Initially looks a bit like a store yard but seeing how stones have been found and how incredible it must be to work out what they are and where they go is like tackling a giant jigsaw!

You can visit this area as a part of your Karnak experience. This is a place to slow down and look at architectural details. Do not let the insisting locals who demand money spoil your visit.

first time to Egypt, we are not traveling with group. the temple is fantastic, but some local people in temple are just like robbers.
before go to Egypt I heard a lot about the big issue that many Egyptians in sightseeing spots rip visitors off ,I just keep in mind and was very careful while in sightseeing spots.
there was someone wearing the suit that looked like he is the staff in temple, he waved to us and said follow him, I thought since he is the staff so no need to be nervous. he took us to a monument or smt like that and just told us some few words about the temple bra bra bra, then asked tips not only his but also the other man standing beside him.
that was ridiculous !! literally I dont wanna give them anything but my hubby gave him 50 egyptian puonds at last.
beware of those Egyptians near you in sightseeing spot !!

Have visited this site many times over the years and each time we see and learn something new. Take a trip around the perimeter of the site where you will come across some beautifully decorated temples that most tours don't get to visit

Try and go early as it can get very busy. We went in the afternoon and it was difficult to move freely as there were so many visitors.
