Your private guide from Look at Egypt Tours will pick you up from your hotel or Nile cruise in Luxor to start your tour in the East bank of Luxor by visiting the complex of Karnak the biggest temple in Egypt was Known as Ipet-It (Most Perfect of Places) to the Ancient Egyptians, Karnak was dedicated to the city’s most powerful triad of God Amun, his consort Mut and their son Khonsu, the moon-God. Covering some 40 hectares (100 acres), Karnak is a vast site. For more than 1,500 years it was the most important religious and intellectual center in Ancient Egypt specially during the golden age of the empire.
Begun during the Old Kingdom, it became the national shrine from the 11th Dynasty, c.2134BC. The temple complex was expanded during the following centuries, with each pharaoh adding his own shrines and monuments to make his mark. Karnak was abandoned around the 4th century AD when the Egyptians turned to Christianity.
The Karnak Temple was connected to Luxor temple by a 3km long processional Avenue of Sphinxes a part of which is still visible, the rest of which is currently undergoing excavation. Eventually, it will be renovated in its entirety all the way to Luxor temple.
After your tour in the Karnak temple head to the Temple of Luxor was dedicated to the mighty Theban triad of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. The core of the temple was built by Amenhotep III the grandfather of King Tutankhamun (1390–1352 BC), and even though it was embellished and expanded several times, its plan remains much simpler and more compact than the complex in Karnak then check in your hotel Luxor.
