Raising the Profile of One of Egypt’s Top Tourist Spots

A restored road connecting two ancient Egyptian temple complexes in Karnak and Luxor was unveiled this week. The 3 400-year-old road linking the ancient centres of Karnak and Luxor, also known as Road of the Rams or the Avenue of the Sphinxes, is lined with hundreds of ram- and human-headed sphinxes, though over the years many have been eroded or destroyed. The road has undergone several restoration efforts since being discovered in 1949, and the latest began in 2017.
