Abu Simbel Temples

Abu Simbel Temples, south of Aswan along Lake Nasser’s shore, is the most famous in all of Egypt after the Giza Pyramids. Built by the greatest of the pharaohs, Ramesses II, which made it also known as the Temple of Ramses II or Ramesses II, these huge rock-cut temples marked the southern boundary of the Egyptian Empire with Nubia at the peak of its power during the New Kingdom. They were meant to convey the power of Egypt’s rulers to anyone who laid eyes upon them. The four statues guarding the doorway to the larger of these temples are the largest sculptures that survive from the ancient Pharaonic era.

Philae Temple Relocation Process

Breakfast at your hotel in Aswan. Then you will be picked up from the hotel at 10:00 AM and then transferred to embark on your Nile River Cruise before lunch at 11:00 a.m., then enjoy visiting the world-famous High Dam. This beautiful temple complex is one of the most picturesque in all of Egypt. It sits on Aglika Island,

just south of the old Aswan Dam and you must ride a water taxi to the island to get to the ruins. The temple was moved to its current location following the construction of the High Dam, which threatened to submerge it permanently.

The reconstruction at the current site was carefully completed, painstakingly preserving the original appearance and layout of the complex and even landscaping the island to match its former location.

Dinner on board and overnight in Aswan. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner

Day 5: Kom Ombo and Edfu Temples

Kom Ombo temple

kom_ombo_temple_Aswan_Egypt

Along with Esna and Edfu, Kom Ombo is the third major stop that most of the Nile cruises between Luxor and Aswan make on their journey. Located only 30 miles north of Aswan, it is also easy to visit Kom Ombo on a day trip by car, however, The setting of this Temple of Sobek, the crocodile god, makes an approach by water the far superior way to visit this site. The temple is perched atop a picturesque bluff alongside the river and while there are no longer any crocodiles in the river

or in the sacred lake inside the temple complex, this riverside temple is still worthy of a visit. Like the other two sites between Luxor and Aswan, Kom Ombo dates from the Ptolemaic Dynasty and it was only completed under Roman rule. The temple has a dual dedication to Sobek and Horus, and the plan of the temple reflects this dual purpose. Sail to Kom Ombo, have breakfast on board, and visit the temple shared by two gods, Sobek & Haeroris, in Kom Ombo.

Sail to Edfu, have lunch on board and then visit the best-preserved cult temple in Egypt, Horus Temple in Edfu.

Edfu, Horus Temple

Edfu_temple_Aswan_Egypt

The Temple of Horus at Edfu is widely considered to be the most impressive of all of the Nile-side temples along the journey between Luxor and Aswan. It is a required stop by all of the cruise ships that make the trip, also stopping at Esna and Kom Ombo.

Like at Esna, the temple at Edfu is a late construction. It was built during the Greco-Roman Period, but the builders painstakingly preserved the form of Egypt’s true pharaohs. As a result, a visit to Edfu allows you to see what all of the other ruined temples around Egypt might have looked like had they been built 2000 years later.

Take afternoon tea during sailing to Esna. Dinner and overnight on board.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Luxor Nile Cruise Tours

Sail to Luxor, have breakfast on board, then visit the West Bank, take an excursion to the royal cemetery for 62 Pharaohs, Valley of the Kings,

Valley of the Kings

valley of the kings

Start your day with an impressive breakfast meal, and then join our Egyptologist tour guide on a tour to visit the gorgeous Luxor tourist attractions, starting with: Its royal burials are located in the West Bank of Luxor, which has 24 terrific royal tombs and, in total, 64 tombs, according to the last discovery at 2008 to 2014.

It's the final resting place of Egypt's rulers from the 18th to the 20th dynasty; it is home to tombs including those of the great Pharaoh Ramses II and King Tutankhamun. The tombs were well stocked with all the material goods a ruler might need in the next world. Most of the decoration inside the tombs is still well-preserved.

Hatshepsut Temple

Hatshepsut_temple_Luxor_Egypt

It is a mortuary temple at Deir El-Bahri. It was built by Queen Hatshepsut, who is considered to be one of the most formidable women in ancient Egypt. The queen is distinguished as one of the most successful pharaohs of ancient Egypt, but she was not the only female ruler in Egypt's history. Her reign was peaceful and prosperous, and as a result, it witnessed a wide variety of achievements, one of which was her own mortuary temple, which commemorates all her great works on its walls.

Colossi of Memnon

memnon_colossal_Luxor_Egypt

They are two incredible, massive stone statues of the royal Pharaoh, Amenhotep III. They depict him in a seated position, and they are made from blocks of quartzite sandstone.

The legendary Colossi of Memnon are the guardians of the Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III. The temple consists of two spectacular twin statues sitting at the entrance of Luxor and it gained fame due to its majestic appearance.

Luxor Temple

luxor_temple_Egypt

On the East bank of the Nile River, in the south of Egypt, the World’s Largest Outdoor Museum, Luxor city, contains one of the most beautiful temples standing. The Luxor Temple is a mark of Ancient Egyptian civilization, a strikingly graceful monument in the heart of modern Luxor.

Different from other temples in Luxor, the Luxor temple was not built in adoration of a god or to a god figure of the kings and pharaohs; instead, it was built in dedication to the rejuvenation of kingship. Many kings might have been crowned at the Temple of Luxor, whether crowned in reality or conceptually, as in the case of Alexander the Great, who claimed he was crowned at Luxor, although facts appear to contradict that he had never traveled south of Memphis, which is considered the modern city of Cairo.

Karnak Temple

karnak-temple

The Karnak Temple dates back from around 2055 BC to around 100 AD. It was built as a cult temple and was dedicated to the gods Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. Being the largest building for religious purposes ever to be constructed, the Karnak Temple was known as the “most select of places” by ancient Egyptians.

During the New Kingdom, the Karnak Temple Complex was the center of the ancient faith while power was concentrated at Thebes (modern-day Luxor), and its significance is reflected in its enormous size.

In addition to its religious significance, it also served as a treasury, administrative center, and palace for the New Kingdom pharaohs. It is to this day considered the largest temple complex ever constructed anywhere in the world.
