On this private excursion from Luxor to the Karnak and Luxor temples you will visit the mighty Karnak temple complex, visit the Luxor temple in the heart of the city of Luxor and learn everything about the building history and meaning of these two imposing temple complexes from a qualified Egyptology.
Your Egyptology tour guide will pick you up from the hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle for your excursion from Luxor to the Karnak and Luxor temple:
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.
The Luxor Temple
In the heart of the city of Luxor, you will find the Luxor Temple, built by Amemophis III. and Ramses II was built. Even Alexander the Great built a chapel for the ancient Egyptian gods. At that time, the Ancient Egyptians celebrated here the most important festival in Thebes, the Opetfest. In 1989, archaeologists happened to find an underground chamber with very well-preserved statues, which are now exhibited in the Luxor Museum. At the Luxor Temple you can see a part of the Sphinx Avenue, which connected the Luxor Temple with the Karnak Temple at that time.
