Temple at Luxor

Temple at Luxor Luxor city

The tomb for Ramses the Second is often cited as the inspiration for Percy Shelley’s poem Ozymandias (in fact, he wrote it before traveling to Egypt). It is the only temple in Egypt that contains both a mosque and a Christian church. At the farthest end, guests can see the remains of romanesque frescoes that once completely covered the hieroglyphics. Contact Indagare to arrange a tour.
