Valley of the kings
The Valley of the Kings (Egyptian Arabic: Wadi el-Mulk) is an area in Egypt where rock-cut tombs were excavated for pharaohs and powerful nobles during the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt, spanning nearly 500 years from the Eighteenth Dynasty to the Twentieth Dynasty.
Karnak is a huge complex of temples, pylons, chapels, and other structures in Luxor, Egypt. Most of the structures in the complex date from the New Kingdom, although construction started during Senusret I’s reign (reigned 1971–1926 BCE) in the Middle Kingdom (c. 2000-1700 BCE) and lasted until the Ptolemaic Kingdom (305-30 BCE). The 18th Dynastic Theban Triad worshipped Amun in Karnak, which was part of Ipet-isut (“The Most Selected of Places”). The city of Thebes and its monuments were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The present settlement of El-Karnak, 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) north of Luxor, is named after the Karnak complex.
During the reign of Pharaoh Hatshepsut of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt, a mortuary temple known as the Temple of Hatshepsut (meaning “Holy of Holies”) was constructed. It faces the city of Luxor and is widely regarded as an architectural marvel from antiquity. Its three huge terraces soar far over the sands of the desert and disappear into the Deir el-Bahari cliffs. El Qurn, a pyramid for her burial complex, sits atop the same mountain as her tomb, KV20.
The two gigantic stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, known as the Colossi of Memnon, stand in front of the damaged Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III, the grandest temple in the Theban Necropolis. Ancient Greeks, Romans, early modern visitors, and Egyptologists knew them from 1350 BC. The northernmost statue has 107 Greek and Latin Roman-era inscriptions from AD 20 to 250, many of which mention Memnon, whom the statue was mistakenly assumed to resemble.
