Overall Guide : The West Bank is the most famous site in Luxor. It consists of the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Ramesseum, Colossus of Memnon, and the Temple of Hatshepsut which is a magnificent temple made in the honour... more of the first female pharaoh. The Temple of Luxor is another visual treat which was earlier connected to the Karnak Temple. Opposite the Luxor Temple is a Roman Chapel constructed in the honour of God Serapis. The huge complex of Karnak temples, which is over 1500 years old, is known for its Hypostyle Hall with gigantic pillars. Visitors can take a tour of the enthralling ancient ruins. The ‘Sound and Light Show’ must not be missed. Also, the Luxor Museum is worth a visit for its significant insight into the historical monuments in the surrounding areas.
