Monuments on the eastern bank of the 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 old name Ipet-isut means “the most sacred of places”. Continuously the building of this complex temple lasted more than two thousand years. It comprises three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples on 247 acres. The great “Hypostyle Hall” is an incredible forest of giant pillars.
- Luxor Temple: The Temple of Luxor was 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. Amenhotep III and Ramses II built this majestic Luxor temple and dedicated it to the god Amun.
Monuments on the western bank of the River Nile
- Valley of the Kings: Valley of the Kings is where the magnificent tombs exist. It is home to tombs of ancient Egyptian kings, e.g., the great pharaoh Ramses II and Tutankhamun. Professionally, the Ancient Egyptians carved these tombs deeply into the mountain rock. Also, they richly decorated them and filled them with treasures for the afterlife.
- Hatshepsut Temple: Hatshepsut temple, at El Deir El Bahary, 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, too. It is one of the most beautiful & best preserved of all of the temples of Ancient Egypt.
