perhaps no city in the world has bequeathed to us more numerous nor mightier monuments than thebes(Luxor).The ancient city stood on both sides of the Nile,and few spots in Egypt are so ideally suited to such a purpose.The range of hills to the east and west curve away from the river bank leaving broad plains on either side.Here marvellous monuments were raised in honour of Amon-Ra.Luxor is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. The population numbers 376,022 (1999 survey), with an area of approximately 416 square kilometres (161 sq mi).As the site of the Ancient Egyptan city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.
The west bank of Luxor(Valley of the kings, the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the famous two colossi of Memnon)
The Valley of the Kings is a valley in Egypt where tombs were constructed for the Pharaohs and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. Valley of the kings was the kingdom of Osiris, god of the underworld. From its grand tombs filled with treasures and decorated with magnificant art, the Egyptian pharaohs believed they would embark on a journey in which they would meet the gods in the afterlife and achieve immortality. The Temple of Deir El-Bahri is one of the most characteristic temples in the whole of Egypt, due to its design and decorations. The Temple was built for the great Queen Hatshepsut to commemorate her achievements and to serve as a mortuary Temple for her, as well as a sanctuary of the God, Amon Ra. Perhaps the most imposing monument on the West Bank at Luxor are the famous 'Colossi of Memnon'. These massive statues which once flanked the entrance to Amenhotep III's mortuary temple now stand virtually alone in a field at the side of the road to the valley of the kings.
Karnak temple is the great national monument which has no equal. It is not a single temple but a construction within another and a shrine within a shrine. Almost all pharaohs in particular those of the New Kingdom wished to record their names and deeds for posterity. The Karnak temples are considered to be a history book stating the history of Egypt from the Middle Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period. Luxor temple is one of the most important cult temples of Egypt It is one of these constructions which had a big portion of research from Egyptologists to try to understand the reason of its construction. Some academics considered it as if it is representing a human being, its head is the sanctuary or the holy of holies, where the god resides and organises the universe, while the body of the human being is the main structure of the temple representing its natives living in it.
