Begin by the Karnak Temple, the Temple/Complex of Karnak was the great god’s chief sanctuary and much larger than any other monument in Egypt. It lies about 3km north of Luxor Temple. This huge and splendid complex which actually contains many separate temples covers 1700 years of expansion and an area of 300 acres. Beneath its giant architraves and between the bulky columns and wall reliefs are records of its growth from a modest Middle Kingdom shrine to a magnificent temple of vast proportions. It owes a column to one pharaoh, a pylon to another; an inspiration here, a whim there. But each has the sole purpose of honoring the god Amun-Re, who would then ensure the builder a long, powerful, and glorious life.
From the Karnak Temple to the Felucca cruise to enjoy amazing sailing on the Nile at the sunset. From the felucca to the Luxor Temple to enjoy a lovely guided tour to the temple by night. The Temple of Luxor (daily from 6 am till 9 pm) was built by the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Amenhotep III (1387-1349 BCE), the grandson of the military genius Tuthmosis III, and expanded by the 19th Dynasty pharaoh Ramses II (1279-1213 BCE). Numerous other sovereigns, including Tutankhamun, Horemhab, and Alexander the Great enriched the construction with reliefs, inscriptions, and minor buildings.
