P365 TE Day 21

Luxor Temple, Egypt

Travel Bite: At the entrance to the Luxor Temple (located on the East Bank of the Nile River) in Egypt, only 1 obelisk stands because the other one was given to France by a not so smart Egyptian. If I remember correctly, Luxor Temple both has an ancient Christian Church, which was eventually buried beneath the streets and houses, and a Mosque was built over it. To this day, parts of both the mosque and the church has been preserved and can be visited.

If you're interested in learning more, you can read about it here.

My bonus tip on planning a trip to visit ancient Egypt is to do your research and only visit the place (fine, you can make it Top 2 places) that interests you the most, because after the first temple, and the first tomb, I swear, they all look the same!
