The karnak temple is one the distinguished identifying marks of Luxor in Egypt, where each of consecutive kings tried to make his temple most magnificent so as to be so distinguished than his predecessor, so the Karnak temples changed to a complete guide and collection showing the development stages of ancient Egyptian art and distinguished pharaonic architecture.

Beautiful, Enormous place. Must visit without fail. You need a guide and need to spend atleast 4-5 hours in the temple to understand and get into the historical era

This is a very old Temple built by the Pharaoes from Ramsy II till Alexander. It was in ruins but now well preserved with the largest hall of the time.

I went there, while staying in Hurghada. You need time to really enjoy. If you can, go in the morning. Such a beautiful place.

Depends on the time you have to spend in Egypt. We took time to visit Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, and with so much to see we needed to squeeze in things when we could. Enjoy.
