Luxor Attractions

Because of the enormous Luxor attractions and the ancient temples and tombs, the Arabs dubbed Luxor “the City of the Hundred Gates.” It is home to a third of the world’s cultural heritage. Luxor, Egypt’s New Kingdom capital, originally emerged in ancient history during the reign of King MentohotepnebhepetRa of the Middle Kingdom.

It’s nearly impossible to explore everything Luxor has to offer in one vacation. Most Egypt vacation itineraries include Luxor, and travelers who take Nile cruises between Luxor and Aswan see Luxor sites. Luxor’s most prominent tourist sites are the Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatshepsut’s temple, Memnon’s colossi, Luxor temple, and the Karnak holy temple complex. The Madinat Habu Temple of King Ramses III, the valley of the Queens, the Luxor museum, the Rameseum Temple of King Ramses II, the settlement of the laborers, and the nobles’ tombs are just a few of the must-see famous locations in Luxor.
