No matter which direction you pass, you will not miss the magnificent Luxor Temple, which is located in the middle of the ancient Egyptian Sphinx Avenue, connecting the Karnak Temple and Habu City on both sides. If you have come from Cairo before, then you will have the feeling of reaching Egypt at the moment you enter the Luxor Temple, because this is the place where the ancient Egyptian ruins are most concentrated. Visiting the Luxor Temple is recommended to come at night, this is also the only temple to open the night.

The Luxor Temple is located in the city of Luxor. Compared to the extreme urban layout of Cairo, Luxor is more comfortable as a tourist city. Luxor people do not necessarily look friendly, but it is probably a casual atmosphere. They look like More calm. The Luxor Temple is right next to the downtown area, and there seems to be no barrier to the shopping street. The huge colonnade is extremely unique from the outside. The broken stone carvings in the Luxor Temple are full of Egyptian style, and although broken, they still carry the beauty of the lines. This temple is an affiliated temple of the Temple of Amon, so there is a Sphinx Shinto road to the Karnak Temple at its main entrance. It is still well preserved and has to be renewed. The colonnade of the
temple is somewhat different from the Temple of Karnak. It has some textures like the pillars of the Gothic church, but it still supports the beams and columns. Although it enriches the sense of the picture, I don't quite understand why it is done, but it is a unique landscape. The interesting thing about this temple is that there is a Roman Catholic god, and there is indeed a Madonna. Here. More interesting is that there is an Islamic mosque on the left side of the entrance.
