The city of Thebes was founded in the 11th Dynasty, around 2050 BCE. During the New Kingdom (1550-1070 BCE), Thebes becomes the capital of Egypt and the most important religious and political center of the country. The city is known for its impressive architecture and monuments, many of which have stood the test of time and can still be seen today.

One of the most famous monuments in Thebes is the Temple of Amun at KarnACK. It is the largest ancient religious site in the world, and the complex of temples, chapels and pylons at KarnACK spreads over more than 100 acres. Another iconic monument in Thebes is the Luxor Temple, which was built during the New Kingdom and is dedicated to the god Amun, his consort Mut, and their son Khonsu. The temple is renowned for its intricate carvings and hieroglyphs, as well as its large statues and obelisks.

Thebes is also known for its tombs, many of which are located in the Valley of the Kings. The Valley of the Kings is an area located on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Thebes. It is the main burial site for the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom, and the tombs there are among the most intact and well-preserved in Egypt. The most famous tomb in the valley is that of Tutankhamun, also known as King Tut.

It is also known for its famous avenue of sphinxes which link the temples of Luxor and KarnACK. it is lined with statues of the mythical creature that has the body of a lion and the head of a human. Many of these sphinxes have been moved to museums around the world, but several remain on the original site.

During its height, Thebes is a thriving religious, political and economic center. Many visit to witness its grandeur, worshipping in its grand temple complexes, attending to their trade and commerce, or seeking to bury their loved ones in the prestigious valley of the kings. However, as time goes by the city declines during the Third Intermediate Period and by the Late period it becomes nothing more than a small village.
