Great Temple of Amun at Karnak in Luxor

You may watch my 79-pics SLIDE-Show from my WebShot page Luxor - Karnak Temple

A highlight of Luxor (ancient city of Thebes) is the Karnak Temple. It covers an immense more than 40 hectares. The main and the grandest place of worship is the Precinct of Amun. The Great Hypostyle Hall is 6000 sq m and filled with immense stone pillars. The whole site has colossal statues, reliefs, obelisks and halls and, of course, the Avenue of the Sphinxes.

    A great page on this impressive site. Too bad there is such a crowd. I wonder when is the best time to be « alone » (if ever that is possible !)

    You have given a great tour of this temple. It takes hours to cover and so easy to miss some of the hidden nooks and crannies. A job well done.

    Wow, it does look like Universal Cahos there! Great descriptions of Karnak - I'd love to see it at a quiet time.

    The temples are certainly interesting, and would be worth seeing. However, the amount of tourists there is insane! I'd feel claustrophobic there.

    Looks like a spectacular place and your photos are amazing. I'm not sure if I could handle those crowds though. Is there any time of day it's not so crowded ? :))
