What is Expected to See during Excursion Luxor & Valley of Queens from Hurghada?
Monuments in the eastern bank of River Nile
- Karnak Temple: It is the largest temple complex in the ancient world. Amazingly, it represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and pharaohs. Its ancient name is Ipet-isut which means “the most sacred of places”. Unceasingly, the building of this complex temple lasted over more than two thousand years. It compromises three principal temples, smaller enclosed temples and several outer temples on 247 acres of land. Within the great “Hypostyle Hall” haunt an incredible forest of giant pillars.
- Luxor Temple: The Temple of Luxor remained the centre of the most important festival – the festival of Opet. This festival was to reconcile the human aspect of the ruler with the divine office. This majestic Luxor temple was founded by Amenhotep III and Ramses II and dedicated to the god Amun.
Monuments in the western bank of River Nile
- Valley of the Queens: In this dolmen Valley, there is a preserved road along which workers of Deir el-Medina moved to the Valley of the Queens. If you go along this road, you will see a rocky temple built in honour of Ptah and Meritseger.
- Hatshepsut Temple: Hatshepsut temple, at El Deir El Bahary, is this impressive temple dedicated to Queen Hatshepsut, the only female pharaoh. Impressively, it rises out in the desert with a series of terraces. It merges with the sheer limestone cliffs that surround it. It is one of the most beautiful & best preserved of all of the temples of Ancient Egypt.
Temple of Tuthmose III: the temple construction occurred in the last decade of Thutmose III’s reign. We can guess that it was around the time of 1435-1425 BC. Most probably, the temple saw destruction by an earthquake. It happened at the beginning of the twenty-first dynasty. Many discoveries took place eventually. One of them was the fragments of walls covered with relief decoration.
- Also, Colossi of Memnon: Two massive mono stone statues of king Amenhotep III are the significant remains of a vast mortuary temple.
