Tour returns to the original departure point
At the heart of the complex is the sacred lake, where you’ll see a big statue of a scarab (a beetle considered divine by ancient Egyptians) that dates back to the reign of King Amenhotep III.
In the afternoon, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Luxor. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Karnak Temples situated about 3 kilometres north of Luxor.
It is the largest temple complex ever built by man and represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders. The Temple of Karnak is actually three main temples, smaller enclosed temples and several outer temples. The three main temples of Mut, Montu and Amun are enclosed by enormous brick walls. The temple begins with the avenue of Rams, then the first and second pylon, then the hypostyle hall with 134 columns. At the end of the tour, you will reach the sacred lake which lies outside the main hall where a big statue of a scarab dates back to king Amenhotep III which was used for purification.
After exploring the Karnak Temples, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Luxor.
