This is at the entrance to the Temple of Kamak, so you pass right through it on your way in - not a separate place to visit. It makes for a spectacular place to enter.

The sphinxes are in amazing condition and the area is well cared for. Bring a sun umbrella since there is no shade, and you will need water

We went at night and the Avenue was lit up. It is adjacent to the Luxor Temple - so do both at the same time. Well worth it.

Walking down between two rows of sphinxes (sadly some have been damaged), but still an incredible entrance to Luxor. This is part of the East Bank tour.

On successive visits to Luxor over the past several years we have watched the gradual uncovering of the Avenue, from the demolition of hundreds of houses, the digging of the trench and the installation of the repaired/ recreated/ replica sphinxes. As of May 2018 the...More
