      Mesmerizing ruins
    by DanielF

Located in the Central Egyptian Nile Valley, this otherwise uninspiring city is host to the biggest temple complex from the Ancient Egypt. The ruins of the temples of Luxor and Karnak are in an incredibly good condition in spite of the thounsands of years of floods, sandstorms, pillages and, lately, tourist herds.

All the huge complex is of extreme beauty and interest, but the impressive hypostile room, with its forest of giantic papyrus-form columns, summarizes at its best the grandeur and colossalism of the ancient Egyptian architecture.

Directions: Luxor is usually the departure or destination point for most of the Nile cruises.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
