Egypt spectacle: historic road between Luxor and Karnak reopened


The 2700 meters long ‘Avenue of the Sphinxes’, which has been restored to its former glory, makes Luxor the “largest open-air museum in the world”, according to the responsible minister Chalid al-Anani.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi also attended the festivities, which were supposed to recall the ancient Opet festival. Part of this was a procession to celebrate the annual flooding of the Nile, which made the soil fertile again.

Spectators were not welcome at the parade due to corona restrictions. That was also the case in April when 22 pharaoh mummies were brought to a new museum in Cairo with a big show.
