Temple of Karnak

It was intended to symbolize the concept of the revival of royalty and was dedicated to the Theban Triad’s God Amun. The temple is adorned with entrancing, elaborate architecture. The finest time to visit the temple is at night when the moonlight illumines the building and gives it a fresh new life.
You will then be transferred back to your hotel for the night.
Day 4: Conclude Your Historical Tour of Luxor: After eating breakfast and leaving your hotel in Luxor, you will continue your unforgettable Christmas vacation in Egypt with your tour guide and take a tour of Luxor West Bank, which will begin with:
The Kings’ Valley
The Valley of the Kings was created by the ancient Egyptians in the mountain’s interior as a special location where the greatest Kings and Queens of the New Kingdom would be buried (1570-1070 BC). There are 63 tombs there, and the most well-known ones are those of Rameses II, Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and the illustrious boy-king Tutankhamun. They are all loaded with magnificent treasures, sculptures, and decorations. Due to the valley’s significance in both history and art, UNESCO designated it as a World Heritage Site in 1979.
Temple of Hatshepsut
The best illustration of status, accomplishment, and class is the Hatshepsut Temple. It was referred to as Djeser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies) and is renowned for being the most magnificent building ever built by the ancient Egyptians. It was constructed in 1479 BC to demonstrate the tenacious spirit of the New Kingdom (1550–1070 BC), Hatshepsut’s devotion to the deity Amun, and her authority as one of the most illustrious monarchs in the annals of Ancient Egypt. The temple’s distinctive style is based on the idea of classical architecture, and it houses some of Egypt’s most spectacular sculptures, decorations, and works of art.
Amenhotep III (1386–1350) constructed the Colossi of Memnon, two enormous stones of quartzite sandstone that rise at a height of 18 m (60 ft), weighing 720 tonnes each, and are shaped like the Pharaoh himself. They have been guarding the city of Luxor for a long time. A significant earthquake that occurred in 27 BC devastated the colossi, although they were later reconstructed in 199 AD. The Vocal Memnon phenomena, where a sinning sound was sometimes created and was nothing more than the sound of the wind blowing past the monument at dawn, helped the sculptures earn a considerable reputation throughout the Greco-Roman era.
