In the northeast of the city is the well-known Karnak temple located, which was probably one of the most important temples of ancient Egypt and whose impressive columns, obelisks and statues of the temple amaze the visitor.
A little further south you will find the Luxor Museum, which exhibits recent finds from the region.
Overnight Trip to Luxor:
It is followed by the Luxor Temple, which was built by Amenophis III and Ramses and dedicated to Amun Ra, the king of the gods. Since the Nile divides the city into two parts, the temple of the famous Queen Hatshepsut lies on the other side of the river.
It stems from the 18th Dynasty and is considered the best preserved temple in Thebes. Not far from the Valley of the Kings, where Howard Carter found the almost intact tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the impressive Colossi of Memnon await your visit.
They embody King Amenophis III. The Valley of the Kings is considered specially spectacular due to its tombs of famous kings from the New Kingdom.
