On a trip to round to Egypt visit the Luxor temple devoted to a fivansky triad of gods of old Egypt – to Amon, Mut and Honsu, – was registered on the South Harem where there lived Amon Mut’s wife and their offspring Honsu. Every spring Amon’s sculpture from the Karnaksky temple transported on a castle to Luxor where god renewed own matrimonial alliance with Mut during the festival of fertility of Opet which was famous for festivities. By the way, many hotels of Egypt offer preliminary booking of tickets to the temple. If the Karnaksky temple was under construction tsars of several dynasties, the most part of the Luxor complex has been constructed at 2 governors during the period, when the New kingdom достигнуло own blossoming. Amenkhotep III (1417-1379 BC) was the founder of the temple from the XVIII dynasty, also constructed the 3rd пилон in Karnaka and Memnon’s Giants on the return river bank. Build works тормознули at Amenkhotep’s offspring – to Ekhnaton (it has destroyed cartouches of own father and has built Aton sanctuary near the temple), then have renewed at Tutankhamun and Horemkhebe who has decorated a courtyard and a colonnade of the temple with reliefs.

History of the Luxor temple of old Egypt
Despite of pozdneyshy additions and sanctuary reorganisation at Alexander the Great, the Luxor temple of old Egypt has kept the internal integrity resisting to incompleteness and giantism of Karnak. When the French fighters have beheld the temple in 1799, they have involuntarily taken guns on guard. The history of Egypt says that reliefs of the temple have kept the clearness thanks to that the construction was half buried under sand and silt deposits and constructions of the small town and consequently here still there lives national culture of Egypt. Travellers of the XIX century wrote about the confused labyrinth of the pise-walled buildings which have grown by the districts of a temple yard; colonnades have been turned into barns where dishonest dealers suspended for ears. Small life in the middle of ruins of life of statelier so potters about, – Flaubert wrote. When Frenchmen have decided to take away an obelisk, and archeologists to begin excavation, they had to pay compensation for destruction 10-ov houses.

Inimitable rounds to Egypt from Kazan diversify dullish everyday life and will turn holiday into something indescribable.
