Temples of Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, pylons and Obelisks. History can be found in your travel guide books. More practical information are as follows:

> It is crowded throughout the day, but better NOT be there between 11am-3pm because the sun light does not make your pics "beautiful".
> You can stroll around the sites, ruins, but you need umbrella, hat, etc..
> Take some nice pics in the Great Hypostyle Hall where there are forest of 134 towering papyrus-shaped stone pillars.
> Bring along water to the site as small bottle of water costs 8-10 EGP.

REMEMBER entrance fee: 40 EGP (My 2006). See more pics of the temples.

To get there, you can take the minibus to the north direction for ask for Karnak temple. It costs only 50p.
