Visiting Valley of The Kings

Valley of The Kings from Marsa Alam

Valley of the Kings is just like a story you hear before sleeping but in actual life. You’ll be face to face with the tombs of the great ancient pharaohs of Egypt.

Valley of the Kings is one of the most amazing tombs from the ancient civilization which is also called  “The Valley of the Gates of the Kings“. The ancient Egyptians used to build hidden underground mausoleums to hide their treasures and their precious items.

The main use of Valley of the Kings was for burials mainly from 1539 BC to 1075 BC. The valley contains about 63 tombs of different rulers, pharaohs, and queens of the old kingdom of Egypt starting from Thutmose I and ends with Ramses XI. The main kings and rulers of the eighteenth were the only ones who were allowed to be buried in the valley. Others out of the royal family were buried in small rock chambers close to the tomb of their master.

The tombs inside the valley of the kings were decorated by the workers of the village of Deir el-Medina, who came from different routes over the Theban hills. Many tombs have graffiti from the ancient tourists as the site attracted tourists from the last two centuries. There were also many expeditions by the Napoleon expedition to Egypt and the European exploration to draw maps to the tombs inside the valley till around the beginning of the 20th century when the team of the American explorer Theodore M. Davis discovered many Royal and non-Royal tombs in the valley. In 2001, new signs of the tombs were designed by Theban Mapping Project to provide new information about the open tomb

Temple of Hatshepsut tour

Visiting The Temple of Hatshepsut

Hatshepsut Temple was built by Queen Hatshepsut during the 18th dynasty in the new kingdom on the west bank of the Nile under the cliffs of “Deir El-Bahari“

Hatshepsut temple is an ancient example of pure visual architecture and there is simply nothing that can match the beauty and elegance of the Hatshepsut temple. It is able to reach the highest level of perfection and is one of Egypt’s incomparable monuments.

Hatshepsut temple was built by Queen Hatshepsut during the 18th dynasty in the new kingdom on the west bank of the Nile under the cliffs of “Deir El-Bahari”. Its purpose was to become the mortuary temple of Hatshepsut and was known as Djoser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies). The temple was the neighbor of the Mortuary Temple of Mentuhotep II which was used as a primary model. It was dedicated to the god Amun and Hatshepsut herself who was successful in immortalizing her name through the ages

Colossi of Memnon

Visiting The Colossi of Memnon

They are called Colossi of Memnon. They are two amazing statues that depict the true meaning of strength and power.

The two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III who ruled Egypt during the 18th dynasty are called “Colossi of Memnon”. They are located in the west of Luxor and directly face the Nile River. They are 18 meters high & each one of them weighs more than 720 tons and they depict the seated king on his throne with some imagery of his mother, his wife, the god Hapy, and other symbol engraved upon the statues.

The Two statues of Amenhotep III are known to the locals as Es-Salamat or El-Colossat.
They were erected in 1350 BC in the Theban Necropolis along the Nile River near Aswan.
Colossi of Memnon were carved out of the quartzite sandstone from El Gabal El-Ahmar.
They were built as guards to a Theban temple when he was considered as a living god on earth.
There is a legend closely associated with the statues which is that a moaning sound can be heard when the sun’s rays hit them in an early morning, which was thought to be the sound of King calling his mother. That sound is believed to have disappeared when the Romans attempted to repair the pieces.

Then transfer back to your hotel in Luxor and overnight.

Temple of Karnak tour

Visiting The Temple of Karnak

Karnak Temples actually contain three impressive and it is considered the largest temple ever. It is the temples city that was built over 2000 years and was dedicated to Amun, Mut, and Khonsu.

Karnak Temple was known as Ipet-Isu by the ancient Egyptians which means “The Most Select of Places“. It is the temple city that was built over 2000 years and was dedicated to Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. Some uneducated ancient Egyptians considered this temple, the place of gods. It contains a vast mix of decayed temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings inside. Most buildings there date back to the new kingdom of Egypt. The area around Karnak was the main place of worship during the eighteenth dynasty Theban Triad. It is located in the village of El-Karnak, which is 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) north of Luxor. It was developed and used between the middle kingdom of Egypt (2080-1640 B.C.) and the early Christian period.

The history of Karnak Temple is related to the history of Thebes, which didn’t gain much significance before the eleventh dynasty. The previous temple that was constructed as a small one dedicated to “The Earth Goddess” Mut and Montu. This temple was destroyed by the invaders and another small temple was constructed with eight-sided columns, which mentions Amun-Re, who was the local tutelary deity of Thebes.

Frequently asked questions about visiting Egypt

How many days do you need in Luxor?

Luxor requires a minimum of 3 days. There is so much to see and do so you will be on the go the whole time. I’d say the minimum time needed to visit Luxor is two days, but you can easily spend longer as there are so many sites, and it’s worth taking the time to enjoy the atmosphere.

Is Luxor worth visiting?

Luxor and Cairo are exceedingly different places and yes Luxor is well worth visiting. This, however, doesn’t mean you have to do it.
