The Highlights of Luxor in Egypt

Luxor hosts more than one quarter of the monuments of the whole world. This is what several historians assert about this magnificent city located in the Southern section of Egypt. Serving as the capital of Egypt in ancient times for many centuries, today Luxor welcomes hundreds of tourists who visit Egypt.

The most outstanding monuments of the East Bank of Luxor, or the city of the living as the ancient Egyptians called it, are the Karnak and Luxor Temples. Linked together with the famous Avenue of Sphinxes, the two temples are among the largest and most impressive in the land of the Nile.

Moving to the West Bank of Luxor, or the city of the dead, as the Pharaohs used to call it, there are several mortuary temples and historical burial sites that grab the attention of all travelers who tour Egypt.

Who can visit Egypt without exploring the Valley of the Kings with the Tomb of Tut Ankh Amun? There is also the Valley of the Queens that hosts the magnificent tomb of Queen Nefertari. Other remarkable monuments to explore in the West Bank of Luxor include the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the Colossi of Memnon, and the Temple of Ramses III.
