Festival of Tutankhamen Tomb Discovery in Luxor

when: Nov 2011 (annual)
where: Luxor

Egypt‘s Festival of Tutankhamen Tomb Discovery is an annual event organised by Luxor City Council. It celebrates the finding of the tomb on 4 November 1922, about 3500 years after the boy king was mummified.

The festival is inspired by the ancient Opet, an Egyptian ceremony that commemorated the annual reunion of the Sacred Theban Triad (God Amon, his wife Mut and their son Khonsu) during the reign of King Tutankhamen.
