What is Expected to See during the Trip to Luxor?
Monuments on the eastern bank of the River Nile
- Karnak Temple: the Temple of Karnak is the largest temple complex in the ancient world. Amazingly, it represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and pharaohs. The temple’s old name Ipet-isut means “the most sacred places.”
- Unceasingly, the building of this complex temple lasted more than two thousand years. It compromises three prominent temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples on 247 acres. Within the great “Hypostyle Hall” is an incredible forest of giant pillars.
- Luxor Temple: The Temple of Luxor remained the centre of the most historic festival, 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
- Hatshepsut Temple: Hatshepsut temple, at El Deir El Bahary, is an impressive temple dedicated to Queen Hatshepsut, the only female pharaoh. Impressively, the temple of Hatshepsut rises out of the desert with a series of terraces. It merges apparently 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 Amenhotep III: the Temple of Amenhotep III is one of the fantastic temples on the west bank of the Nile River in the Theban Necropolis, Luxor governorate. Amenhotep III, pharaoh of the Dynasty XVIII, built this temple at about 1400 B.C., where the ancient Egyptians worshipped him as a god.
- Temple of Thutmose III: Deir el-Bahari is the home of the temple of Thutmose III. The temple sits on a rocky platform in the centre of the Deir el-Bahari valley. Hence, it dominates over the other structures. The Temple of Hatshepsut and Mentuhotep Nebhepetre surround the design itself.
Ayshna Mukherjee –
The Nile boat trip or the Felucca Ride as it is commonly referred to in Egypt was another beautiful memory on our trip. It comes as an additional trip if you want to enjoy it. I don’t think that coming to Egypt and not taking a boat ride on the Nile will be a wise option. As decided, we had booked this tour with Landious Travels. I had explicitly wanted this to be arranged so that we could witness the setting sun sailing on the Nile. Seeing the sunrise on a balloon and the sunset on the Nile, I believe is a lucrative experience I will suggest everyone try out. Both ways it will be soul-stirring. Witnessing the beauty of the Nile floating on it is an experience of a lifetime! It was a super relaxing, pleasurable, & rejuvenating experience. I felt myself to be like Cleopatra sailing with all her royal entourage in tow! We were mesmerized by the panoramic view that we got to see of the city of Luxor. The best part of this trip lies in stopping mid-way at Banana Island. The other unique thing about this trip is the fruit basket that is given to us and all the fruits are all seasonal fruits. For this boat ride, you can either book along with a group or else book privately as well. Whichever suits your mood. But do ensure to book a Felucca as that will give you the traditional feel of it. Before ending this trip our guide just made it perfect by purchasing sugar cane drinks for us!!! What a sweet way to end the day. Great suggestion for all, while visiting Egypt, do set sail on the Nile with your beloved one in tow. Believe me, it’s mesmerizing!!
Me and my family booked a trip to Nile River from Hurghada. I have a 9 year old kid and I was pretty nervous about him, trust me, it is SO uneasy to make him go on excursions. I thought he will not be very interested in looking at the river but I was so wrong! The moment we stepped on board he couldn’t stop talking about buildings and temples and the river itself! Everything was so new to him and he did enjoyed the trip! I want to thank for this magnificent opportunity and recommend it to all the guests who come to Egypt!
