Stunning Luxor Day Tour From Hurghada
Luxor Day Tour From Hurghada Will start by a visit to The Valley of the Kings in Luxor, where 63 tombs and 20 incomplete holes have been found. This is the royal burial site of Egypt’s new kingdom kings. A religious inscription that describes life in the hereafter adorned the royal tombs.
The wealthy Eighteenth, Nineteenth, and Twentieth Dynasties of Egypt’s New Kingdom (c. 1550–1069 BC) were buried there, hence the name “Valley of the Kings,” which was located across the Nile from Thebes. However, this designation is not entirely correct because in addition to the king and other members of the royal family, many other non-royal, but extremely high-ranking, people were also buried here.
Then we’ll visit the well-known temple of Hatshepsut (c. 1473-1458 BC), the queen who ascended to power and became pharaoh, is located in Deir al-Bahari, on the west bank of Luxor. Three man-made terraces that gradually slope up toward the steep cliff face make up this amazingly spectacular structure. The goddess Hathor, who in ancient Egypt raised all rulers, including their mythological ancestor, the god Horus, revered the area of Deir al-Bahari. These mountains are where Stelae depicting Hathor emerging in the form of a cow are observed. This amazing geological feature has a peak that naturally resembles a pyramid.
Then we’ll move to The largest temple in the Theban Necropolis, the Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III, is encircled by two colossal stone sculptures of Amenhotep III known as the Colossi of Memnon (Arabic: el-Colossat or es-Salamat). Since they have been around since 1350 BC, they were well-known to early modern travellers, Egyptologists, Greeks, and Romans. The sculptures have 107 Roman Empire Greek and Latin inscriptions that date from between AD 20 and 250. The northernmost statue has numerous inscriptions, many of which are about the mythological Greek king Memnon, whom the statue was formerly incorrectly thought to depict.
Finally we’ll visit The Karnak Temple Complex, a large collection of crumbling temples, pylons, chapels, and other buildings, as our last stop. Construction of the complex began during Senusret I’s time in the Middle Kingdom and continued into the Ptolemaic Kingdom, despite the fact that the majority of its existing structures are from the New Kingdom. Ancient Egyptians referred to the region around Karnak as Ipet-isut (“The Most Selected of Places”), and the Amun-headed Theban Triad used it as their primary place of worship. It is a portion of the great city of Thebes, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as a whole in 1979. The Karnak complex refers to the partially enclosed surrounding territory.
