This is one monumental site. The columns are gigantic. Very impressive display of hieroglyphics here. On this day, it had to be in 100s F (high 30s C). The heat was brutal. The air, if any, did not move around once inside. Be prepared with a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a lot of water. This was great to see.

just to walk around and soak up the atmosphere, quite amazing. Even the hassle was low key, just people trying to make a living

We on our busy 5 day trip did Cairo, West Bank and the Luxor Temples - they were all incredible, mesmerising and amazing. Luxor was lovely - I like the row upon row of pillars with the papyrus tops. The top stones - the statues - it was all amazing. I have no complaints at all apart from wishing it wasn't so hot! There are better temples but they all had something different to offer. Our guide said by the time we finished we would be totally templed out - he was right - we were shattered but loved the experience.

We visited as part of an organised tour, we have a private guide and visited after Karnak Temple, the statues of Rameses are very impressive as are the columns and hieroglyphics. Take plenty of water and be careful of the guards as the will offer to show you interesting items for money, don't do it the guides would show you if it were that interesting. cameras are allowed

Compared to the Giza Pyramids, Luxor Temple is by far the most spectacular ancient sight I have ever been to along with the Karnak Temple. Wonderful spiritual experience!
