Karnak temple

Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple Tour

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.

Luxor Temple

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 than other temples in Luxor, the Luxor temple was not built in adoration to a god or to a god figure of the kings and pharaohs; instead, Luxor Temple was built in dedication to the rejuvenation of kingship. Many kings might have had their crowning 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 contradict appear that he had never traveled south of Memphis which is considered the modern city of Cairo.

Hatshepsut temple

Queen Hatshepsut

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.

Overnight on board Nile Cruise.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

breakfast on Nile Cruise, visit the well-preserved Ptolemaic Temple dedicated to Horus at Edfu.

Edfu temple

 

Edfu, Horus Temple

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.

Sail to Kom Ombo to see the unique Temple of Sobek, dedicated to Sobek the crocodile god, and Horus the falcon-headed god.

Kom Ombo

Kom Ombo

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, as well as Horus, and the plan of the temple reflects this dual purpose.

Have your lunch on board. Continue sailing to Aswan. Dinner and overnight on board your Nile Cruise.

High Dam

High Dam

High Dam

When construction began on the High Dam in 1960, it was the most heralded part of President Gamal Abdel Nasser’s effort to develop Egypt for all Egyptians. While the dam is certainly not the largest in the world, it is an impressive engineering feat nonetheless, over 360 feet tall and 12,500 feet across.

The dam was completed in 1971 and the huge reservoir behind it, named for President Nasser, finished filling in 1979.

Temple of Philae

Philae Temple

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 careful 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.
