Luxor

Luxor is Situated on east bank of Nile River. Pharoah’s capital city Luxor is the next best thing tourists search for after Cairo. But totally immersed in Ancient Egypt’s charm and Nile River’s hold, the place calls to be explored through roadways, waterways and airways.


History Of Luxor


In ancient times, the city was called home to the god Amun, and was named ‘Waset’ which means ‘City of Sceptre’. Many Egypt’s rulers of New Kingdom era were buried close to the city in the nearby Valley of the Kings.


Later it attracted Babylonians, Turkey and Greek etc. Greek called it ancient city of Thebes which means ‘City of 100 gates’. And from then on it remained spiritual city throughout Christian era.


Of all the ancient cities, no one came close to the glory of Thebes and is now the largest and wealthiest heritage site in the world.
