The valley is on the West Bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes, modern Luxor, within the heart of the Theban Necropolis.

    We will also visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the most distinguished temple in Egypt with its layout and decorations.

Sobek (aka Sebek, Sebek-Ra, Sobeq, Suchos, Sobki, and Soknopais) (he had a lot of names didn’t he?)  was the ancient god of crocodiles and was sometimes considered a manifestation or another form of Horus, because Horus sometimes took on the form of a crocodile to retrieve the body parts of Osiris which were lost in the Nile.
