Highlights Luxor

The name Luxor is a corruption of the Arabic place named Al-Uksur, which means ‘the palaces’- an allusion to the palace-like temples of ancient Thebes.
Today Luxor owes much of its importance to the fact that these temples are annually visited by thousands of tourists.
Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world’s greatest open air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city.
