maps that we have uploaded here are all from Google Earth. MSN also have
maps of the area but they are not quite so clear. The maps show all the
major sites and the major thoroughfares.
Unfortunately, the maps are somewhat out of date as there have been huge
renovation projects in Luxor which have seen the demolition of some entire
streets. The effect of this has been superb into bringing Luxor into the
21st Century while not only retaining its antiquities but making them
more accessible and attractive. It has been a great achievement. However
it might be a while before the maps catch up with the rate of change.
The area at the side of Luxor Temple is now a large open space piazza
as is the previously cluttered area in front of Karnak Temple. The temple
now has its former glory of having a clear view of the River Nile.
