Karnak Temple

Our first station in Luxor. The Karnak Temple Complex is home to three main temples, several smaller enclosed temples and a number of outer temples which combining achievements of ancient builders over a period of 1500 years. Around thirty different pharaohs contributed to the building process of this site, enabling it to reach a size, complexity and diversity not seen elsewhere. It was afterall the New Kingdom’s most sacred site. Take your time in exploring.

Luxor Temple

Around 1400 BC, during the New Kingdom, the Temple of Luxor was founded. Explore the focus of one of the most important religious festivals in ancient Egypt. As it is dedicated to Amun, Mut and Khonsu, the cult statues would travel from Karnak to Luxor during the annual Opet Festival. As a result, the temple is not aligned to the river, as it is more usual, but to Karnak. Try to take an extensive photo of both temples. Just a try!

Valley of the Kings

Change your way to the west bank of the city. Valley of the Kings represents gateway to Afterlife provides window on the past. The ancient Egyptians built massive public monuments to their pharaohs. But they also spent time and treasure creating hidden underground mausoleums that no one was ever meant to see.
