Do You Dream?
The further you go, the deeper you step into history.
The first thing you'll see when you visit our #89 AbsoluteVisit is the majestic obelisk standing tall in front of the temple.

The road was covered by sand and dirt over-time, but the city of Luxor is in the process of restoring it. This road should be incredibly impressive upon its completion. At any rate, The Luxor Temple itself is quite impressive as well. Its massive front gate only hints at what will follow and Brad and I were again amazed at the main pillar lined court. Over-time, a mosque was actually built inside of ...  read more
