Visit Karnak Temple
Karnak Temple is located in Karnak, which contains a vast mixture of temples, pylons, chapels, tombs. The construction works started in the complex in the Middle Kingdom during the reign of Senusret I and continued until the Ptolemaic period. More than 30 pharaohs contributed to the construction works.
The complex also contains evidence of adaptations, using buildings of the Ancient Egyptians by later cultures for their own religious purposes. The Hypostyle Hall is the most interesting thing in Karnak, which was established during the 18th dynasty. The major importance of Karnak Temple lies in the fact that it is mainly the contact point between Amun, the supreme ruler of the universe, and the pharaoh, the supreme ruler on Earth who represented all Egyptian people.
Enjoy Luxor Temple
The most interesting thing about Luxor Temple is that it was started to be constructed by pharaoh Amenhotep III but it was actually completed by Tutankamun & Horemheb and finally king Ramesses II came to add some artifacts to such a magnificent complex. It has always been used for worship matters. It was dedicated to the Theban Triad of the cult of the Royal Ka, Amun, Mut, and Khonsu and it was the center of the Opet Festival which was held yearly.
Witness Luxor Temple By Night

You will witness there the lights at night that will allow you to feel like you’re running down a hallway to get away from a member of the underworld in addition to the avenue of sphinxes that looks ancient and eerie at night.

Watch the Massive Colossi of Memnon
They are two massive stone statues that were built to commemorate a great pharaoh from the 18th dynasty “Amenhotep III”. Egypt during his reign was in a total stable state and he added so many buildings and constructions to the history of Egypt and that is why his two statues represent a lot to the Egyptian civilization.
