Luxor Temple. at Luxor Temple
Luxor Temple at night. Luxor was constructed around 1400 BCE. "Unlike the other temples in Thebes, Luxor temple is not dedicated to a cult god or a deified version of the king in death. Instead Luxor temple is dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship; it may have been where many of the kings of Egypt were crowned in reality or conceptually (as in the case of Alexander the Great who claimed he was crowned at Luxor but may never have traveled south of Memphis, near modern Cairo.)" at Luxor Temple
Cruising the Nile. at Salwa Qibli, Aswan, Egypt
Massive statues at the Temple of Karnak. at Temple of Karnak
The Temple of Karnak - in Luxor, Egypt - is the largest religious building ever constructed - covering an area of about 200 acres - and was a place of pilgrimage for nearly 2,000 years. .
The area of the sacred enclosure of Amun alone is sixty-one acres and could hold ten average European cathedrals. The great temple at the heart of Karnak is so big that St Peter’s, Milan, and Notre Dame Cathedrals would fit within its walls.
The Hypostyle hall (pictured here), is 54,000 square feet and features 134 columns - still the largest room of any religious building in the world. Just massive! at Temple of Karnak
Cruising south on the Nile river from Luxor to Aswan... definitely an experience we will never forget! at El Deir, Qina, Egypt
We were expecting scenes from the Indiana Jones movie “Raiders of the Lost Arc” when we showed up at the Temple of Karnak, but it turns out that the shooting for that movie occurred in the USA, not Egypt (thanks Hollywood)! What we saw was much more grand. Karnak made us feel very small, but we were just in awe at how big these columns were! at Temple of Karnak
A traditional Felucca ride at night near Cairo is a relaxing way to end your evening in Egypt. The views at sunset aren’t too shabby either! at Nile River Cairo Egyt
The Great Sphinx of Giza. With a head of a human and the body of a lion, a sphinx is typically thought to be treacherous and merciless - killing and eating those who cannot answer its riddle. Luckily for us, however, this particular mythological creature has a disposition to do good. So... we were not eaten! Phew! at The Sphinx and Giza Pyramids
It is something else entirely to see the Pyramids in a picture than in person, that is why we will be putting up a 360 video on our website so you can experience it a little closer to how it actually feels - and if anyone knows how to alter that for VR, let us know! Look for the video within the next couple weeks.

This is the second largest pyramid, the Pyramid of Khafre, which is one of the three that you think about when someone talks about the Egyptian Pyramids. at Pyramid of Khafre
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo. If you want to know about Egyptian history and actual artifacts, this is the main place to go. Most artifacts have been moved here from ancient sites. at Egyptian Museum
We tried a simple Egyptian noodle soup at the Oozy Grill in Fayoum and it blew our minds! The hot soup is made with lightly browned orzo noodles, a vegetable (or chicken) stock/broth, lemon zest, cumin, pepper, and a few onions and carrots. It was served with some small Egyptian lemon halves (the size of key limes) that we were encouraged to squeeze into the soup. The soup was hot, but extremely refreshing at the same time due to the lemons. .
We devoured the soup so fast that our guides thought we were starved... and then ordered us much more food than we could handle afterwards. Try the soup! We’ll be putting a recipe on our blog this month with our favorite Egyptian dishes. https://www.eatwanderexplore.com/our-blog .

While the “Cave Church” in Egypt is open air (apart from the covering from the top of the cave) - there is also a smaller enclosed “Winter Cave Church” that is part of the same Mountain cliff. If you’re in Egypt, it’s worth checking out!

The “Cave Church” in Al-Mukattam City, Cairo, Egypt.
One of the largest churches in Egypt, with a weekly attendance of roughly 70,000 Christians, is also known as the “Cave Church”. And it is a sight to see!
It hosts one of the world's oldest Christian communities - a village where more than 90 percent of the people are Coptic Christians, in a country that is mostly Muslim.
The Monastery of Saint Simon, is located in the Mokattam mountain in southeastern Cairo.
To get the full effect, we will post a 360 degree photo on our Facebook page later today. at SAINT Simon's Monastery
The Muhammad Ali Mosque, also known as the “Alabaster Mosque“, is the most visible mosque in Cairo and the most iconic structure in the Citadel.
Muhammad Ali Pasha, not to be confused with a professional American boxer with the same name, is “regarded as the founder of modern Egypt because of the dramatic reforms in the military, economic and cultural spheres that he instituted”. He had this mosque commissioned and built between 1830-1848 in memory of Tusun Pasha, his oldest son, who died in 1816. at Mosque of Muhammad Ali
