Create an itinerary including Luxor Temple
Walk in the footsteps of ancient Egyptians at Luxor Temple, a World Heritage Site constructed some time around 1400 BCE. The large sandstone temples, granite monoliths, and giant colossi were designed to celebrate the idea of pharaohs as kings and gods, rather than any particular god or individual pharaoh. As you pass through the vast site, notice the different additions made by non-Egyptian civilizations--special highlights include Roman murals and a mosque.

  • This is one of the 3 "must see" sights in Egypt - the Pyramids, Karnak, and The Valley of the Kings, with Abu Simbel being a possible 4th. The 200 acre site is packed with so many interesting things.....  more

  • We visited in August 2022. We visited this temple after visiting Karnak and seeing the avenue of the sphinx. Amazing history and well presented.

  • Very nice. I arrived before sunset and got to enjoy golden hour here, but many other tourists had the same idea. I stayed for the night as reviews wrote it looked nicely lit but I think it looks better in the sun. Quite expensive, maybe 200LE? Can't remember.
  • Luxor temple is supposed to be awesome at any time, however, it is too crowded until 19:00. Better to visit between 19:00 and 20:00 and enjoy the temple with beautiful light. Currently (October 2021) there is a construction work being doing, but I'm not sure if it is about building a permanent entertainment scene or it is just a temporary construction.
  • Simply Amazing!!! How the ancient Egyptians were skilled, how huge are the antiquities... this us breathtaking... I had the chance to visit it at night with lights this was way more beautiful than in the morning.
  • Absolutely stunning. The construction of this ancient temple is fascinating and an obvious must-see in Luxor. No water vendors inside, so best to take your own. Restrooms are up near the small gift shop. Some areas have no shade, so take sunscreen when needed.
  • Lovely one specially by night. You can see the sphinx passage close to the entrance. Special dinners are done by night. Lovely place. I like this temple very much. Please keep it clean and nice. Try to provide some shades all around. Also you make the electric cars with extra money to go through out the whole temple. All the best.
