visits the impressive Karnak Temple in the early morning
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 as the largest temple complex ever constructed anywhere in the world.
head out to visit the Royal Cemetery of 62 Pharaohs and the
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 of 64 tombs according to the last discovery from 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 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.

- Royal Cemetery, Valley of the Kings
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.

– Visit Kom Ombo Temple
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.

Go on unique Aswan Excursions
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.
The Unfinished Obelisk is a rare opportunity to consider what this process might have been like and just how difficult it was to shape and carve the great stone blocks that makeup Egypt’s many monuments.
This huge obelisk would have stood 140 feet in height, the largest even in Egypt. It was to be carved from the Red Aswan granite that decorates many of Egypt’s greatest monuments and for which the city is famous. This greatest of all of Egypt’s monoliths, however, was never finished. At a late stage in its formation, a flaw in the rock was discovered and it was abandoned.
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.
