This morning we visit two astonishing temples on the East Bank of the Nile - Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple. Karnak in particular is absolutely awe-inspiring; the largest ancient religious site in the world, a complex of immense pylons and obelisks, tranquil lakes and sanctuaries and the Hypostyle Hall, where 134 soaring columns, each with a diameter of more than 3m, are arranged in perfect geometric rows, all covered in exquisite hieroglyphs. There can be few more serene and romantic ways of passing time than gliding down the Nile on a river cruiser. This afternoon we set sail for Edfu.
