The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is embarking on a mission to revive Luxor’s Al-Kebbash Road, known to the Ancient Egyptians as ‘Wat Nathr’ or ‘Path of God’. This 27,000 metre road connects the Luxor and Karnak temples,  with 1,200 ram-headed sphinxes lined up on either side of it. The ram heads represented the deity Amun, who was said to protect the two temples.


Around 90% of the renovation has already been completed. The road will be inaugurated in a grand ceremony at the end of next June 2021.
