Egypt 2: The Temples of Luxor and Aswan

Egypt  2: The Temples of Luxor and Aswan

This is a wonderful opportunity to visit two of the most visited sites in all of Egypt, Luxor and Aswan. Featuring some of the largest and best-preserved stone temples of ancient times, Luxor has been called the world's greatest open-air museum; it is the site of ancient Thebes, the chief city of Egypt over 4,000 years ago, and is home to the Temple of Luxor, once the center for the important festival known as Opet. Here you become absorbed in the history of such ancient figures as Tutankhamun and Alexander the Great. Next we journey south on the Nile River to Aswan to see what is considered among the most magnificent monuments in the world, the Great Temples at Abu Simbel; constructed for Ramseses II who reigned for 67 years during the 13th century BC (19th Dynasty). Threatened by submersion by Lake Nasser in the min-1960s, these temples of the pharaoah and his favorite wife, Nefertari, were cut and moved to higher ground. 02/10 IJSCA 30 min.
