Location

It is this glorious city located on the banks of the Nile River in southern Egypt! Luxor is a city in Upper Egypt and the capital of the Luxor governorate. It has a population of about 600000 people and an area of ​​about 417 square kilometres.

History of Luxor

The city obtained several names during its long history. Luxor derives its present name from the Arabic language, as the Arabs called it Al-Uqsur.

Thebes has a long history rooted back to the very early development of the Egyptian civilization. Luxor grew up as a small village during the period when Memphis was the capital of ancient Egypt. There, the god Mount, the god of war, was worshipped in this city. However, the situation changed so obviously that Luxor became the capital of Egypt. Luxor reached its greatness in the 10th century BC during the New Kingdom. Luxor, then, knew the worship of the god Amun.

The city’s importance began as early as the eleventh Dynasty when the town became a prosperous city. In this period, the pharaoh Montuhotep II managed to unify Egypt after the troubles of the First Intermediate Period. There, the city became the new capital of this unified country. The military campaigns started from Thebes by the pharaohs of the New Kingdom. In short, from the time of the 18th Dynasty until the twentieth Dynasty, the city became the political, religious and military capital of ancient Egypt.

However, the political and military importance of the city faded during the Late Period, as Thebes was replaced by several capitals in northern Egypt, such as Popastis, Cisse and finally Alexandria.

After the year 1811 AD, the year of the opening of the travel agency Thomas Cook, Luxor became a tourist destination. The city has become a holiday area and is a bustle for the English rich.

Nowadays, thousands of tourists worldwide come annually to visit these monuments, which significantly contributes to the city’s modern economy.
