Karnak Temples and Temple of Luxor

Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt during the glorious period of the New Kingdom (1580-1085 B.C.), for the ancient Egyptians it was “Wast” which also means prosperity and for the Greeks and the Romans it was Thebes holds a great place for Egyptologists and history fans as it is really “the greatest open air museum in the world”. The huge amount of monuments in Luxor can be subdivided to religious buildings on the Eastern Bank of the Nile such as the complex of the Temples of Karnakand Luxor Temple. While the Western Bank is mainly dedicated to funerary buildings namely the Valley of the Kings with rock cut royal tombs dating back to the New Kingdom, the Colossi of Memnon (remains of the funerary temple of king Amenophis III (c. 1400 B.C.) and the terraced funerary temple of Queen Hatshepsut (c. 1450 B.C.).

 You will visit Karnak Temples, the biggest complex of temples in the whole world; it is mainly dedicated to the Theban Triad (Supreme god, Amun-Re, his consort, goddess Mut and their offspring, lunar god Khonsu. Building the karnak started during the Middle Kingdom (c. 2000 B.C.) and continued till the Roman era but the main contribution is attributed to the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom. Then you will visit the magnificent Temple of Luxor, mainly built by king Amenophis III (Dynasty XVIII) and king Ramesses II (Dynasty XIX) and they both date back to the New Kingdom. The Temple was mainly dedicated for the main festival of god Amen, the Opet festival.
