If you plan a trip to Egypt, then visiting Luxor must be one of your objectives. Use your chance and visit the capital of Pharaohs. The city is about 7000 years old and has over 75% of the ancient monuments of the world. You now have the chance to admire the largest temples in the world with their unique large columns. One of them is the fascinating Karnak temple with its 134 columns. The Karnak temple belonged to the two most famous kings of Egypt.
The most beautiful temple in Luxor is the Hatshepsut Temple. This mausoleum, as it is also called, belonged to the queen Hatshepsut. She was the daughter of God Amon and she ruled Egypt for 18 years, bringing peace and prosperity to Egypt. Her grave lies not in the Valley of the Queens, but in the Valley of the Kings.
Another tourist destination to visit in Luxor is the 2 huge Memnon Colossi. They belonged to the famous King Amenophis III. The two very impressive large colossi, which functioned as the lifeguards of the city, were built in 1370 BC.
In the west part of Luxor, on the other side of the Nile is the breathtaking Valley of the Kings. The kings who ruled Egypt believed that life after death was not over. That is why they have built graves with the most beautiful reliefs and colors from that time and until today well preserved for 7000 years. And do not forget: the Valley of the Queens. Here only the queens were buried. Especially the tomb of Nefertiti, she was the wife of Ramses II, is one of the most memorable tombs. Visit the ancient tombs, admire the tomb’s paintings with their magnificent colors
and you will automatically return to the Pharaonic magical time.
