Title: The Might of the Pharaohs

Luxor in Upper Egypt has the most magnificent array of Ancient Egyptian temple and tomb remains, set beside the Nile. The great temples of Karnak and Luxor on the east bank and the hidden tombs of the Valley of the Kings on the west bank are its major attractions, sailing in a felucca on the Nile is its great relaxation. Only at Luxor can you realy appreciate the full might of the pharaohs, and the overpowering legacy of Rameses, commemorated in Shelley’s immortal lines: ‘My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings. Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
