Luxor is the most important archaeological site in all of Egypt. Established on the banks of the River Nile. The history of Luxor (originally called the city of Thebes) dates back to 3,200 BC. Still, the city did not prosper until well into 2,134 BC, during Dynasty 11, when Mentuhotep II put an end to conflicts, thus bringing peace and stability to the region, at which point Thebes began to prosper as a city until in 1,550 BC, during the 18th dynasty, it became the political and regional capital of Egypt.
Luxor has been ruled by some of the most important and famous pharaohs in Egyptian history. To this day, many of its tombs, monuments, and temples of worship still stand, perfectly preserved, including the tomb of the world-famous Tutankhamun.
