History Of Luxor

In ancient times, the city was called home to the god Amun, and was named ‘Waset’ which means ‘City of Sceptre’. Many of Egypt’s rulers of the New Kingdom era were buried close to the city in the nearby Valley of the Kings.

Later it attracted Babylonians, Turkey and Greek etc. Greek called it the ancient city of Thebes which means ‘City of 100 gates’. And from then on it remained spiritual city throughout the Christian era.

Of all the ancient cities, no one came close to the glory of Thebes and is now the largest and wealthiest heritage site in the world.
