Among the wonders of the Nile, Luxor is the gatekeeper to the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
Luxor rises on the land that was once the holy city of Thebes, the heart and soul of Ancient Egypt’s New Kingdom period. Today, it boasts the accolade of being the largest open-air museum in the world, with an impressive collection of temple complexes, monuments, necropolises, and obelisks. Also an inspiring manifestation of Egyptian cosmology, Luxor hosts significant landmarks in alignment with the cycles of the sun.
On the west bank of the Nile, the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens lie with splendor. The Valley of the Kings is the resting place of the most iconic figure of Egyptian history, the boy king Tutankhamun, among 62 other tombs. And right across the radiant waters of the Nile are the temples of Karnak and Luxor. The sun rises above them each day, adding to their ageless glory.
Luxor is the heartland of Ancient Egypt’s royal grandeur and a city of mystical wonder. Countless cryptic tombs offer insight into the oldest human civilizations. More sites wait to be unearthed beneath the city’s rock valleys and the endless desert.
