Temple of Habu is one of our most important destinations

The spectacular Habu Temple on Luxor’s West Bank, erected by Ramses III in Medina Habu.

It recalls the tale of its architect with his conflicts and victories against Libyan tribes and numerous sea peoples in superbly preserved reliefs on its walls and columns.

The first worker’s strike in history occurred during Ramses III’s reign.

When laborers stopped building work on his grave due to a lack of supplies.

When you enter the temple, you will note that excavations will restore the temple to its former state in 1891.

A church dated 1859 and other residences in other areas of the temple complex were demolished.

Before we go on to the following site on our Luxor West Bank Tour.

Let our knowledgeable Egyptologist explain the wall designs to you.

The Valley of the Kings is situated in a deep valley carved out of the rocks.

To defend themselves against grave robbers, the pharaohs had their tombs erected under the protection of these massive walls.

Unfortunately, grave thieves targeted numerous tombs.

Even before archaeologists found them, these graves had been looted.

You may notice several holes in the rocks on our journey to the Valley of the Kings, created by grave thieves looking for tomb burial goods.

Second destinations: Valley of the Kings

We ride a tiny train up to the actual entrance of the Valley of the Kings after arriving at the Valley of the Kings.

You may pick which three tombs you want to visit with your entry ticket.

However, the entrance cost is not included a visit to the world-famous Tutankhamun tomb with its mummy.

Final destination in the tour: Valley of the Queens

The Valley of the Queens, also known as Ta Set Neferu (Place of Beauty).

It is located in a valley that runs east to west in the Thebes Mountains, right behind Medinet Habu.

It is not as well-hidden as the Valley of the Kings and is relatively easy to find.

The goddess Hathor is already depicted at the cemetery’s entrance in human form and cow form.

That suggests that the graveyard’s location links to the goddess Hathor, patron of the caves.

A waterfall occurs during heavy rains and is collected by the cave.

Like the Valley of the Kings, this cemetery was placed on the list of UNESCO world historic sites in 1979.

The term “Valley of the Queens” is a little misleading, as the 90 graves include both queens and nobility.

Apart from the famed tomb of Nefertari with its magnificent designs, most of these tombs lack the dramatic wall paintings seen in the Valley of the Kings.

All of these tombs have a hypnotic effect on their visitors and are also intriguing in their own right.

After you’ve got a sense of how the Egyptians buried their pharaohs.

Now we finished Luxor West Bank Tour and we’ll head back to your Luxor hotel or Nile cruise ship.
