East Bank of the Nile Private Guided Tour
No sites in Egypt are more impressive than Luxor! After having your breakfast, you will find Yola waiting for you to take you on an exploring adventure on the East side of the Nile bank. With an A/C car, you will be heading to the largest temple complex ever built by man and represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and pharaohs, The Temple of Karnak. The temple is actually composed of three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples, and the main place of worship of the eighteenth dynasty Theban Triad with the god Amun as its head. It is part of the monumental city of Thebes. The original temple was destroyed and partially restored by Hatshepsut, although another pharaoh built around it in order to change the focus or orientation of the sacred area. Many portions of it may have been carried away for use in other buildings. As Yola will be telling you every story carved on the walls, you will be impressed and amazed by how detailed and beautiful the art they created. Don't waste your excitement and energy till you head to the next site, which is The Luxor Temple. The Temple of Luxor was the center of the most important festival, the festival of Opet. Built largely by Amenhotep III and Rameses II, the temple's purpose was a setting for the rituals of the festival. The festival was to reconcile the human aspect of the ruler with the divine office. A part of the Luxor Temple was converted into a church by the Romans. The mosque of Abou al-Haggag also stands atop the ruins of a part of Luxor Temple. You will get fascinated by how huge these monuments and statuses are. Having a hot Egyptian oriental meal would add great spice to your adventure. At the end of this adventure, you will be heading back to your hotel/hostel.
