Kurna (also Gourna, Gurna, Qurna, Qurnah or Qurne?) are various spelling for a group of three closely related villages (New Qurna, Qurna and Sheikh `Adb el-Qurna) located on the West Bank of the River Nile opposite the modern city of Luxor in Egypt near the Theban Hills. The Colossi of Memnon have survived for 3,400 years and were an acoustic wonder of the ancient world. SINCE 1350 B.C., These ancient Egyptian statues have loomed over the Theban Necropolis. Though battered by more than 3,400 years of scorching desert sun and sporadic Nile floods, they`ve captivated the imaginations of curious travelers for millennia.
