Stunning Luxor Day Tour From Marsa Alam

We’ll visit The valley of the Kings in Luxor which is the royal burial place of Egypt’s new kingdom rulers, 63 tombs and 20 unfinished pits have been discovered. The Royal tombs were decorated by a religious inscription, which describes the life in the afterworld.

The Valley of the Kings, so named because it was where the kings of the Eighteenth, Nineteenth, and Twentieth Dynasties of Egypt’s affluent New Kingdom (c. 1550–1069 BC) were buried, across the river from Thebes . This name is not totally accurate, though, as a number of non-royal, albeit very high-ranking, people were interred here in addition to the king and other members of the royal family. The East and West Valleys separate the Valley of the Kings. Given that the western valley only has a few graves, the eastern valley is by far the more famous of the two.

Then we’ll visit Deir al-Bahari, on the west bank of Luxor, is where the well-known temple of Hatshepsut (c. 1473–1458 BC), the queen who rose to power and became pharaoh, is situated. This edifice, which is made up of three man-made terraces that progressively slope up toward the sheer cliff face, is incredibly magnificent. The location of Deir al-Bahari was revered by the goddess Hathor, who in ancient Egypt nurtured and raised all kings, including their mythical progenitor, the god Horus. Hathor is seen emerging from these mountains in cow shape, Stelae bearing prayers to Hathor depict her . The summit of this magnificent geological formation has a naturally pyramidal appearance.


Then we’ll move to The Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III, the biggest temple in the Theban Necropolis, is surrounded by two enormous stone statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III known as the Colossi of Memnon (Arabic: el-Colossat or es-Salamat). They have existed since 1350 BC, and early modern visitors, Egyptologists, and the Greeks and Romans were all familiar with them. 107 Greek and Latin inscriptions from the Roman Empire, dating to between AD 20 and 250, are found on the sculptures. Many of these inscriptions on the northernmost statue pertain to the Greek mythological ruler Memnon, who the statue was then mistakenly believed to represent.

Finally we’ll visit The Karnak Temple Complex which is made up of a sizable collection of dilapidated temples, pylons, chapels, and other structures. Even though the majority of the complex’s remaining structures date from the New Kingdom, construction at the complex started under Senusret I’s rule in the Middle Kingdom and lasted into the Ptolemaic Kingdom. The area around Karnak was known in ancient Egypt as Ipet-isut (“The Most Selected of Places”) and served as the focal point of worship for the Amun-headed 18th Dynastic Theban Triad. It is a piece of the magnificent city of Thebes, and in 1979, the entire city was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The surrounding, partially encircled area is known as the Karnak complex.
