    Present day Luxor in Egypt is built on the Nile at the site of ancient Thebes, a city that reached its glory under New Kingdom pharaohs. It was in Thebes that the imposing temples of Karnak and Luxor were built over three thousand years ago to honor the great god Amun. Successive pharaohs endeavored to outdo their predecessors by enlarging and embellishing these cult centers. By doing this they hoped to please the gods and enhance their own status. Over the years, the Karnak and Luxor temples grew ever more magnificent...


    Luxor was one of the most famous Egyptian cities since ancient times. It was in the period of the modern state (1085-1567), the capital of the Egyptian state, and it was called "West". The Arabs chose the name Luxor for its many palaces and buildings and its temples. It was built of limestone and granite. The city blends the old character with the new character in a wonderful way, which has made it unique in the world. Aswan is one of the most beautiful winter cities in the world. It has many impressive monuments and tourists visit it every year to enjoy the warm climate and see these monuments.
