Many pharaohs played a part in building this temple over the years including Tutankhamen, Hatshepsut and Ramses II. As you walk through the temple you can see the contributions of each one usually where you find statues and images of them carved in the walls.

* Day 2

● Medinet Habu (The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III)
It is also referred to as the Temple of Ramses III. The Mortuary Temple of Ramses III has well preserved Ancient Egyptian art and architecture. The funerary temple includes various military and religious motifs. The entrance to this temple complex is through the singular huge gate; this large building is particular to Medinat Habu and is carved with giant images of the Ramses III.

● The Colossi of Memnon
In the west bank of the river Nile you will visit the two statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). These two gigantic figures of Amenhotep III were originally situated in front of his Mortuary temple, which seems to have been destroyed for unknown reasons.

● Valley of the Kings
A truly impressive site! There, you will find Tutankhamen’s tomb and the tomb of Ramses IV. It is a valley in Egypt where tombs were built for the Pharaoh and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom.The major attraction in the Valley of Kings is the Tomb of Tutankhamun. Although the tomb alone is worth a visit, you will have to visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to see the treasures Tutankhamen was buried with.

● Temple of Hatshepsut
The temple is unique because it was designed like classical architecture. Note the lengthy, colonnaded terrace some of which are 97 ft. high, pylons, courts and hypostyle hall. Inside you’ll see the sun court, chapel and sanctuary. As you approach it from the distance, it is as if you are looking at a modern building that has been carved out of a mountain.

Ein Ausflug nach Luxor der lohnt

Wir haben die 2 Tagestour nach Luxor gemacht. Es war sehr schön, haben alles Besichtigt angefangen von den Karnak Tempel bishin zum Tal der Könige. Die Fahrt war sehr lange aber im grossen und ganzen ist dieser Ausflug sehr empfehlenswert trotz der großen Hitze im August.

Luxor - Geschichte und Kultur pur

Das Highlight des Ausflugs war die Licht und Ton Show im Karnak Tempel. Einfach atemberaubende, sowas muß man sich mal angeschaut haben.
