Dubbed the "Avenue of the Sphinxes," the 3,000-year-old promenade connects the Luxor and Karnak temples and is lined with statues of rams and sphinxes, the Associated Press reported.
The site in southern Egypt has been excavated for the last 50 years, the report said, and stretches for a few miles near the bank of the Nile River.
A lavish unveiling celebration on Thursday evening was equipped with fireworks, dancing, and music. A video from the country's Ministry of Tourism showed a parade with multiple choreographed dances as attendees watched.
President Abdel Fatah el-Sissi was in attendence, the AP said.
It's the second time this year that Egyptian authorities have organized a grand celebration to honor its ancient history.
In April, 22 mummies were paraded through the streets of Cairo in a motorcade that featured music, costumes, and lights, CBS News reported at the time.
The festivities are Egypt's latest attempt to revive its tourism sector, which has been hit by a decade of political instability and now the COVID-19 pandemic, the AP said.
