What is Expected to See during Excursion Luxor & Valley of Queens from Hurghada?
Monuments on the eastern bank of the River Nile
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 old name is Ipet-isut, meaning “the most sacred of places”.
Unceasingly, this complex temple’s building lasted over 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.
The Temple of Luxor remained the centre of the most important festival – the festival of Opet. Amenhotep III and Ramses II founded this majestic Luxor temple dedicated to the god Amun. This festival was to reconcile the human aspect of the ruler with the divine office.
Monuments on the western bank of the 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. Along this road, you will see a rocky temple built in honour of Ptah and Meritseger.
At El Deir El Bahary, Hatshepsut temple is an 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 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
The significant remains of a vast mortuary temple are two massive mono-stone statues of King Amenhotep III.
Agatha Christie –
Another wonderful trip arranged by Landious Travel is the Valley of Queens. From there you can also go to see the Karnak Temple and the Hall of Perfume. Then the lunch will be arranged once again beside the Nile. This done, you will be part of a boat ride/picnic on the Nile to reach the western bank of Luxor. There you will get to see the temple of Amenhotep III and the Colossi of Memnon. The special attraction of this tour will be a visit to the local alabaster factory where all tourist goes to buy souvenirs. The visit to this place is nearly the same as that of The Valley of kings mentioned above. Only except for the boat ride for which you need to book earlier along with a stop at Banana Island. Both these you need to book well in advance as they remain in high demand. This trip also includes all tickets for the temples. A perfect open buffet lunch beside the Nile. A trusted guide and lastly worth mentioning will be the transfer back to and fro from the hotel. Once again, their punctuality has to be praised, and maybe Indians learn from them as well. Carry good cameras as there will always be multiple options to take pictures as well. Highly Recommended!! See you there!
