Venue and Location

The number of monuments and their preservation in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. Actually, what most people think of Luxor to consist of is really three different areas, consisting of the city of Luxor on the east side of the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor, and Thebes, which the ancient Egyptians called Waset, which is on the west side of the Nile across from Luxor.
