THE WORLD’S GREATEST OPEN AIR MUSEUMLuxor is a city on the upper reach of the Nile north of Aswan. Luxor has frequently been characterised as the “world’s greatest open air museum”, as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. The Temple of Karnak, is particularly appealing at night, when the famous Sound and Light Show moves from the courtyard, into the majestic Hypostyle Hall, and to the sacred lake, telling ancient stories through music, illuminations, and projected images.
