The most famous obelisk relates to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the queens who ruled Egypt in the 18th dynasty during the new kingdom of ancient Egyptian history, she was the wife of King Tuthmosis II and the first woman in all of Egypt's history to rule the country. Others believe that this obelisk relates to Queen Nefertiti, wife of King Akhenaten, but no evidence yet to prove that theory.

This is because it is dedicated to two gods of ancient Egypt: the left side is dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris (meaning Horus the old or the great) and the right temple is to Sobek, the local crocodile-headed divinity, one of the evil figures according to the ancient Egyptian religion.

Lunch aboard the cruise ship while sailing to Edfu.
Transfer then to visit the Temple of Edfu, dedicated to god Horus who was the son of Osiris and protector of kingship, is the best-preserved among the temples in Egypt and was called the House of Ra, the father of all gods in the pharaonic era. You will sail towards Luxor and have dinner aboard the boat.

Continue your Luxor east bank tours to visit the Temple of Karnak, in ancient Egypt, especially during the New Kingdom, was the most prominent religious center. The main temple was dedicated to the worship of the god Amun, but as in other Egyptian temples, other deities were also included and have been worshiped.
