Luxor Temple by Night
Luxor temple dates back to around 1392 BC when Amenhotep III started the process of its construction and was completed by Tutankhamen in 1336 BC and Horemheb in 1323 BC. The temple is still used for worship to the present day so the site was buried beneath the houses of the city. During the Coptic Period, the temple’s hypostyle wall was used as a Christian church.
We will drive you back to your hotel to spend the night.
Day Two: Visit Luxor West Bank

Valley of the Kings
The west bank of Luxor had been the site of “The Place of Truth” and the royal burials since 2100 BC. The Pharaohs of the New Kingdom had selected this isolated place to host their legendary tombs. The valley of the kings introduced over 60 royal tombs to the world which contain millions of treasures and jewelry.
Hatshepsut temple is the precious achievement belonging to Queen Hatshepsut which is situated beneath the gigantic cliffs of “Deir El Bahari“. Hatshepsut was one of the best-known pharaohs of the 18th dynasty and she is believed to have ruled the country for 22 years. She had planned for promising constructive projects and this majestic temple was one of them.
