The Valley of the Kings (Thebes)

 
The Valley of the Kings (Thebes) Inconspicuous and unassuming, the Valley of the Kings hides its secrets well. The grand pyramids of the earlier pharaohs proved too tempting to grave robbers, so from the eighteenth to twentieth Dynasties, 26 pharaohs opted to build their tombs in the valley. Carving them deep into the mountains, far from reach, Tutankhamun, Ramses the Great and Tuthmosis III's tombs lie in this single, sprawling necropolis. There are interesting tombs to see in the Valley of the Queens and the Valley of the Nobles as well. Source:http://www.egypt.travel/index.php...
 

Colossi of Memnon (Luxor)

 
Colossi of Memnon (Luxor) These are the first ruins visible when arriving by ferry. They are the sole surviving remains of the funerary temple of Amenhotep III which, according to recent discoveries, was more vast than the complex of Karnak. Even with a great deal of imagination, it is difficult to picture. The faceless giants stand in front of the first pylon with their backs to the mountain. They represent the pharaohs sovereign majesty seated on his throne. The funerary complex, of which nothing remains, was the biggest on the west bank.
