On Thursday, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities announced that it will hold the reopening ceremony of the ancient Rams Road (Kebash Road) in Luxor on Thursday 25, November.
The Rams Road stretches 2,700 meters between the ancient Karnak and Luxor temples with 1,200 ram-headed sphinx statues on both sides.
Authorities have carried out major restoration work on the road and the temples of Karnak and Luxor over the recent months.
The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has invited foreign ambassadors in Egypt and a number of public figures to attend the ceremony, according to media reports.
The reopening of the Rams Road comes as Egypt embarks on various major projects to restore historic sites and promote tourism.
Last year, Egypt inaugurated the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization with a spectacular Pharaohs’ Golden Parade that transferred 22 mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to their new home.
