Luxor, once a capital of the ancient Pharaonic civilization under the name Thebes, yesterday received more than 5,000 Egyptian and foreign tourists to celebrate the return of the mummies of King Ahmos I, who defeated the Hyksos, and King Ramses I.



The royal mummies will be displayed later at Luxor Museum, which is being expanded and revamped to be the first museum that tells the glory and great deeds of Thebes.



The mummies that arrived earlier in the day, were boarded on funeral chariots that marched in a massive procession from the Luxor International Airport to the Rams Aisle which stretches from the temples of Luxor to the Temple of Karnak.



Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA)Zahi Hawas, said the Luxor Museum will be built over an area of 5000 meters to accommodate more than 140 historical monuments representing the golden era of the Egyptian military during the 18th Dynasty along with glimpses of the scientific and artistic renaissance of that age.
