The new updated guide with the latest discoveries on Luxor Karnak and the Theban Temples is coming soon.
The Luxor and Karnak temples and the great memorial temples of ancient Thebes are the most visited archaeological sites of Egypt, masterpieces of universal art and architecture, listed among the sites of Unesco world patrimony.
The Luxor and Karnak temple complex are one of the largest archaeological sites in the world, mentioned by the great historian Herodotus 2500 years ago. Huge pylons, colossal columns, and imposing obelisks tell the history and myths of Egyptian civilization, of which they are one of the most magnificent finds.
This map – guide represents with a 3D drawing the tomb of Tutankhamun as it was at the time of its discovery and summarizes the most important finds of the fabulous treasure it contained.
Forgotten for over 3000 years, and despite having reigned for only a decade, Tutankhamun has become the most famous pharaoh in the history of ancient Egypt because of the fabulous treasure discovered in his tomb thanks to the intuition and perseverance of the archaeologist Howard Carter and the generous support of his patron, Lord Carnarvon.
His tomb, the smallest in the Valley of the Kings, yielded over 4000 artifacts – splendid jewelry, amulets, chests filled with
precious objects, thrones, ritual beds, elegant alabaster vases, and his world-famous death mask made of solid gold.
