Luxor is nicknamed the City of a Hundred Gates or the City of the Sun, which was formerly known as Thebes. It is the capital of Egypt in the Pharaonic era, and is located on the banks of the Nile River, which divides it into two halves, the eastern land and the western land. Luxor is said to contain about a third of the world's antiquities, and it also houses many ancient Pharaonic monuments divided into the city's eastern and western shores. The Temple of Deir el-Bahari, the Valley of the Queens, Deir el-Medina, the Ramesseum Temple, and the Colossi of Memnon. The founding of Thebes dates back to the Fourth Dynasty around 2575 BC, and until the Middle Kingdom, Thebes was nothing more than a group of simple neighboring huts, although it was used as a cemetery to bury the dead. Where it was the burial place of the rulers of the regions since the era of the Old Kingdom and beyond, then the city of Thebes later became the capital of Egypt during the era of the Eleventh Egyptian Dynasty at the hands of Pharaoh Mentuhotep I, who succeeded in uniting the homeland again.
