The Temple of Amun was definitely one of the most magnificent Egyptian accomplishments we experienced during our stay in Luxor. Located within the Temple of Karnak area, it is a very dynamic architectural wonder. Definitely a must see attraction while in Luxor.

The Temple of Amun reveres him, his wife, & his son if I remember correctly. It is nearby the larger Karnak complex. It is also close to the Nile.

You can ignore the sellers and walk. Lots of hassle if you want to buy one thing for a family, better to just walk and know what you want!
