About This Image:

It is funny that when I look at this photo of the Luxor ruins, I don’t think of the modern Egyptian city that surrounds it. On that first afternoon in Luxor when I saw it bathed in the golden light of the afternoon sun, it felt utterly separate from the city around it. Almost as if it were a little island of Egypt’s past, a glimpse into the history books if you would.

The Luxor ruins are part of ancient Thebes, a temple built by Amenophis III and Ramses II. It was a temple dedicated to the Egyptian deities Amun, Mut, and Chons. Originally it was connected by a processional avenue to the nearby temple at Karnak and there would have been an ancient Egyptian city surrounding it. As is often the case in ancient cities, what we see today is a ghost of the past. We really only have the most impressive buildings, which are in ruins, and everything else is only a memory.

Still, what stands in the Luxor ruins is a gorgeous sliver of the past. Even today those columns look regal and impressive. I’ll never forget encountering them on that first afternoon in Luxor as our group took a quick walk along the corniche to familiarize ourselves with the city. The timing, as you can see in this print, couldn’t have been better. The light was golden perfect and fleeting. And I did not see its like again during the rest of our stay in Luxor.

Have you visited the Luxor ruins? Perhaps you have a golden memory of your time there? Or maybe you simply love Egyptian history? I hope you’ll pause for a moment to share what appeals to you most in this Luxor print?

Note: Luxor Temple along with nearby Karnak and the rest of ancient Thebes is part of a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site
