These temples are the second most popular tourist attraction in all of Egypt and are an excellent example of the architectural genius of the ancient Egyptians. There are four main sections in the temple complex. However only one is on display to the public. Tourists can view the Amun-Re precinct; all others are off limits. There are many temples, obelisk, and columns in the Amun-Re part of the complex.
The Luxor temples date back to 1400 BC and are at par with the Konark Temples. However, they have greater historical significance as they were the crowning site of many Egyptian Kings. There are many sandstone structures such as friezes, magnificent murals, and statues of Pharos and Gods in the temple complex. A trip to Egypt is incomplete without a visit to these temples.
