was called 'the city of a hundred gates' due to its buildings
and large gates. Arabs were impressed by its beautiful palaces
and re-named it Luxor (City of Palaces.) Two thirds of the
world’s monuments are in Luxor which makes it a very
remarkable place that must be seen. It offers its visitors
with a large number of amazingly huge temples and colorful
tombs which astonishes every single visitor. It is divided
into two sections by the Nile River. The east side is called
the Site of Living where ancients Egyptians used to live
out their daily lives, and the west side is called the City
of the Dead where we will find all the tombs and burial
site of the dead.
