Luxor, Egypt – In a small alley, traders pass the time while playing dominoes in front of their shop . Two of then are wearing the traditional clothes “Galabeya” and headgear. Domino has a high popularity after Backgammon in Egypt. Luxor (al-Uqṣur) is an Egyptian city and was among the most glorious of the ancient capitals of Pharaonic Egypt. Built, dormant on the banks of the Nile. Luxor simply means "the city of the palaces,". In ancient Egypt, Luxor served as a temple district, in the ancient Egyptian royal metropolis of Thebes. Luxor Temple and the alley of the sphinxes – the two most important sights of the city, probably date backs to 6th millennium BC. Most monuments of this ancient city make part of Egypt's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the Karnak temple complex to Thebes royal and noble graves, Luxor is one of the most visited sites after the Giza pyramids. The recently discovered sphinxes alley measuring 2.7 km long and 76-meter wide, is a testimony of the opulence of the ancient Egyptian empires. It was born from the will of ancient kings nearly 3,400 years ago, to pay homage to their gods. Each of Pharaoh since the reign of Amenhotep III, left their mark there – especially Ramses II. It was a symbolic route where ancient Egyptians formed long processions once a year, carrying the statues of the deities Amun and Mut in a symbolic re-enactment of their marriage. Interestingly, these recent archaeological excavations, have also uncovered other traces and evidence of the Roman reign in Egypt. During Roman times, it was called Thebae and at this period, it became part and parcel of the larger Roman empire, when they designated Egypt as a roman province. In fact, when an army camp was set up in the Luxor, the temple itself was reconverted and used for administrative purposes. It is thought that Queen Cleopatra, regularly visited and sojourned in Thebes numerous times, during her travels with Marc-Antony. #benative #culture #travel #instapassport #wanderlust #travelandlife #travelblogger #instatraveler #globetrotter #explore #learn #translation #language #translator #culture #egypt #luxor #cleopatra #sphinx #nile #coptic #ancientegypt #egyptian
