Travel Blogs from Luxor

Aswan, luxor & the nile

A travel blog entry by amandane


... us up and took us to visit the Philae Temple which was dedicated to the goddess of Love and Peace, Isis, wife of Osiris and mother of Horis. This was a really large monument with many pillars and detailed carvings everywhere. The artistry was beautiful. We had to travel to the island where the temple is now located by a little wooden boat. The temple itself was nearly lost during the construction of the High Dam back. The water levels of the Nile in this region had risen ...

Luxor (Thebes), Karnak, and Valley of the Kings

A travel blog entry by jonnystravels


I arrived in Luxor and headed off to my hostel, after being swamped by people trying to get me to take a taxi or lead me to another hotel. And it was nicely signposted, so hard to get lost.

The colours remaining on the frescos was amazing considering the age of the building. We had some time to look around both inside and out, and then we wandered back to the SS Misr.
We set sail just before lunch, to make our way to Kom Ombo. Lunch was another delicious buffet where we got the chance to chat to ...

Day 6: Eating and sailing

... paintings in an Egyptian temple.

The obelisk out the front of the temple was pretty spectacular, the first intact one we have seem here in Egypt, it was impressively tall and very clearly carved.

After the temple we went to a papyrus shop and watched a demonstration of how papyrus is made and how to spot a fake. After the demo we were allowed to look at all the hundreds of different papyrus they had for sale; it was so nice to walk around and look without ...
