The Valley of the Kings

In the Valley of the Kings are the tombs of the kings of the New Kingdom (about 1550-1069 BC 18 to 20 dynasty) to find. In 1922 Englishman Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tut Anch Amun with its golden treasures.
The Hatshepsut Temple
The mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut dates back to the 18th Dynasty, 1470 BC. She had her impressive terrace temple built by the architect Senenmut. She was always portrayed as a man, which can be clearly seen from the very well preserved statues in the temple. In Christian times a temple was built on the temple, which was used until the 11th century. In the 19th century, the monastery ruins were demolished.
The Memnon Colossi
The Memnon colossi are two side by side ancient Egyptian colossal statues, about 18 m. high from the 14th century BC Both statues represent Amenhotep III and were located at the entrance of his temple.
Afterwards, enjoy our Nile trip and a delicious oriental lunch.
The Karnak Temple
It is the largest temple complex ever built. Here the ancient Egyptians immortalized the holy family of Thebes, Amun-Re, his wife Mut and the son Chonsu. The complete construction time of the temple lasted over 2000 years. Among the most significant areas of the temple is the large columned hall with 134 papyrus columns, built by Seteth and completed by Ramses II.
