Luxor / Thebes was the capital of the New Kingdom (1579 - 1070 BC). Amun-Ra, a local god, became the most important god in the Egyptian pantheon. Two important temple complexes were built on the east bank of the Nile, Karnak and Luxor. Both were constructed over an extensive time with various pharaohs adding embellishment. Various necropolis complexes were established on the west bank of the Nile including the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and Deir al-Bahari(Temple of Hatshepsut).
