Karnak The ancient Egyptian name of the temple was Ipet-isu—or “most select of places”—by the ancient Egyptians, over 2,000 years to build the complex of Karnak from the middle kingdom to the Greek-Roman period. It is the largest religious center ever built,  about 200 acres (1.5 km by 0.8 km), and was a place of pilgrimage for nearly 2,000 years,  dedicated to the Theban triad of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. The Hypostyle Hall, one of the most interesting things we will visit about 54,000 square feet continue  134 columns, is still the largest room of any religious building in the world. After finishing the tour in Karnak we will drive to the Temple of Luxor.

kings valley In 1979 UNESCO designated the valley of kings a part of the World Heritage site of ancient Thebes, including Luxor, the Valley of the Queens, and the complex of Karnak. The site of royal burials since around 2100 BC,  the pharaohs of the New Kingdom  (1550–1069 BC) chose this isolated valley to make their tombs.

One of the reasons they choose this valley in the west bank of Luxor ” the pyramid-shaped mountain”,  in the center of the mountain of the west bank, so they will not waste time or spend money to build a pyramid. The Valley of the Kings has 64 tombs, Just 24  Royal Tombs. Then we move on to visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
