Karnak Temples Tour
Karnak Temple is a vast temple complex in Luxor dedicated primarily to Amun and dating from as early as 2000 BC. It is an impressive sight, and second only to the Great Pyramids in popularity. The temple complex of Karnak, dedicated to the Pharoah Amun, was the center of his worship and of his wife Mut and their son Khons. Each of them had a precinct in the temple complex, the greatest and largest belonging to Amun. There was also a precinct for Montu, the falcon-headed local god. Construction on the Karnak temple complex began in the 16th century BC and continued into the Greco-Roman period – a period of up to 1300 years of construction. Around 30 successive pharoahs added their own touches to the Temple complex.
Luxor Temple Tour
Luxor Temple is a great temple complex in modern Luxor dedicated to Amun, a creator god often fused with the sun-god Ra into Amun-Ra. Construction work on the temple began during the reign of Amenhotep III in the 14th century BC. Horemheb and Tutankhamun added columns, statues, and friezes, and Akhenaten had earlier obliterated his father’s cartouches and installed a shrine to the Aten. However, the only major expansion effort took place under Ramses II some 100 years after the first stones were put in place. Luxor is thus unique among the main Egyptian temple complexes in having only two pharaohs leave their mark on its architectural structure. Lunch meal will be served at a quality restaurant in Luxor. The last part of your Luxor trip will be a shopping opportunity in case you are interested to pick some souvenirs for family and friends. Drive back to El Gouna with direct transfer to your hotel.
