The ancient Egyptians knew Luxor as “Niut”, “the City”. Homer named it the “City of a Hundred Gates”. It possesses undeniable charm. Here and there among the palace halls and gardens and on facades of 19th century buildings with corbelled balconies there is a glimpse of the past colonials and Egyptian monarchs. As the sun sets, the Temple of Luxor seems to stand apart from the world of the living. Its columns, colossal statues and bays recover their serenity, oblivious to the carriages passing by.
