Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

埃及卢克索(Day 28)

卢克索,埃及古城,位于南部尼罗河东岸。因埃及古都底比斯遗址在此而著称,是古底比斯文物集中地。

35天的邮轮世界之旅,这天是我们唯一参加船上组织的 < 卢克索一日游 >
因为除大洋邮轮送的 Onboard Credit/ $1200 没花完之外,
另一重要原因,随船出行的团是雇用了当地警察作保镖。
就凭这一招,我认了!

Disembarking the ship, you’ll board your comfortable motor coach for the drive to Luxor. During the drive, you’ll enjoy majestic scenic vistas provided by the vast expanses of desert and barren mountains that are interspersed with areas of surprisingly fertile farmland.

↗ 街头游击队?

Arriving in Luxor, your first stop will be at a local hotel where you’ll be treated to a lovely buffet lunch.

那天莫名的晕车,吐个不停。就这样在途中煎熬了三小时总算到了卢克索大酒店。

自助餐时只要了一罐ginger ale, 才感觉好些~

you’ll rejoin your coach and cross the fabulous Nile River, proceeding to the West Bank area for a visit to the Valley of the Kings.
Here you will find the remarkable tombs of Egypt’s ancient kings, their families and other Egyptian nobility. Ample time is allotted here for you to fully explore this wonderful site.

↗ The Valley of the Kings(里面不允许拍照,挂两张网络照片)
墓道天花板画了无数的星星,尽头是巨大的棺柩,刻满了密密麻麻的图腾与文字,记载了法老王的一生。

哈其苏女王神殿(Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut)

Next, it’s on to Hatshepsut Temple where there will be a short photo stop. This awesome mortuary temple that was buried under sand for centuries was built by Hatshepsut, the only woman to rule as a Pharaoh. Built into the mountainside, it stands as an incredible monument to the powers held by the pharaohs.

↗ 哈其苏女王神殿(Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut)镶嵌在一片山壁中央,十分壮观。
它是为纪念埃及唯一的女法老哈其苏(古埃及语意思为“最受尊敬的”)而建,相当于埃及的武则天。

门农巨像( The Colossi of Memnon)

A second photo stop follows at the Colossi of Memnon, two massive statues that originally flanked the entrance to Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple. Although the temple itself was destroyed in an earthquake and most of its remnants have long since disappeared, these magnificent statues still stand guard today, albeit over an open field.

简介:门农巨像(Colossi of Memnon)颇像一对孪生兄弟,高18米,重700吨,是用沙石雕刻成阿敏何特普三世(Amenhotep III)的坐姿雕像,手安静的放在膝盖上,眼睛凝视着东方的尼罗河。由于风化严重,面部已不可辨识。

↗ 罗马统治时期的地震使雕像出现了裂缝。每当起风时,门农像就像在唱歌(也有说是哭泣),十分神奇。

卢克索神庙 (Luxor Temple complex)

Your final stop of the day will be at the spectacular Luxor Temple complex. Here, you will find a collection of simply breathtaking statues, obelisks, and temples that date back to the 14th century BC. After a truly unforgettable day immersing yourself in Egypt’s mesmerizing ancient history and culture.

简介: 神庙的建造历史极为漫长,考古学家通过神庙中重新被使用的建筑材料推导出在埃及第十二王朝时这里就已经有一座神庙了。现在保存下来的神庙主体是建于鼎盛的新王国时期,从那时候开始,整座神庙的建造又延续了一千多年。

由于历经兵乱,多半神庙已破环湮没,现在保存较完好的要属卢克索神庙。
如今的卢克索是世界上最大的露天博物馆,往昔岁月留下的唯一见证,有着“宫殿之城”的美誉。

卡尔纳克神庙共有三部分——供奉太阳神阿蒙(Amun)的阿蒙神庙,供奉阿蒙妻子战争女神穆特(Mut)的神庙,以及孟修神庙。

↗ 两旁蹲坐着100个狮身人面像的大道通向东北方向。
据说2004年时,这条大道上还有现代卢克索城市的建筑,之后市政府开始将这条大道重新整清。

埃及人说:“没有到过卢克索,就不算到过埃及”。
