Cost on applicaiton
Leave from the Nile, West Bank, Luxor
Travel by motor boat to Karnak Temple
We take part in the annual Karnak Solstice Celebrations
Karnak Temple is dedicated to the sun god Amun Ra.
At Winter Solstice every year the sun illuminates the sanctuary of Amun Ra at Karnak, and then moves towards the temple gates and illumines Hatshepsut’s temple on the West Bank of the Nile.
The religious complex of Karnak, in Luxor, is the largest ancient religious site in the world. The solar alignment at the God Amun Holy of Holies at Karnak Temple also coincides with the illumination of his Holy of Holies at the Hatshepsut's temple on the West Bank of the Nile.
Ancient Egyptians believed that the solstice was a time of rejuvenation and revitalization. From June 25 to Dec 24 the earth goes through a time when seeds are created in the darkness of the earth. The earth stops moving from Dec. 21 to Dec. 24 and begins to move again from Dec. 25, when ‘the light of the world” is reborn. This is the time to plants the seeds for new spiritual growth and “listen and watch” for the signs for the new directions in your life for the new cycle ahead.
The temple of Karnak was known to ancient Egyptians as Ipet-Sut. This referred mainly to the Precinct of Amun Ra, and means something like “most select of places” or “The most esteemed of places” or “The chosen Place”, something to that effect.
Amun Ra was known as a Father God who reigned over the Sun and fertility of the region. The Ancient Egyptians believed he was able to boost the growth of crops by shining his light on them. They also believed that if they did not worship him, he could do the opposite and take the light away. He was the King of gods who created everything including himself. He represents the hidden and the seen because Amun is the hidden and Ra is the visible sun itself, therefore, he is the beginning and the end. Amun, the god who created the universe and Ra, the god of the sun and light. Ra travelled across the sky every day and was swallowed up each night by the goddess Nut, then pass through her belly through the night and be reborn again at dawn….

The Solstice at Hatshepsut Temple
In time for sunrise on Tuesday 22nd we will make our way to Deir El Bahri, on the West Bank of the Nile. Hatshepsut temple known by the Ancient Egyptians as Djeser-djeseru, ‘sacred of sacreds’.
Magnificently set up against the Theban Hills we find the Holy of Holies dedicated to the sun god Amun Ra deep into the bedroom of the mountain. This temple is recognised as one of the architectural wonders of the world.
As well as the Holy of Holies of Amun at Hatshepsut’s temple, the chapel of Hathor and Anubis, are also on the same e same solstitial alignment, so this temple is so very significant.
Hatshepsut’s temple gazes out toward the heavens toward the Eastern horizon; the moon and the sun rise, the constellation of Orion and the Star Sirius!
We will complete with breakfast at Memnon Restaurant opposite the Colossi of Memnon on the West Bank of Luxor.
