Egypt

Egypt is synonymous with the legends of the Ancient Egyptians. Names like Ramses and Cleopatra, Tutankhamun and Nefertiti, echo through the art and literature of the world's different cultures. Egypt is probably the world's oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago, historically. The temples, the mummies and the pyramids, with their mysterious origins still fascinate school children, grown-ups, and even Egyptologists. Apart from the antiquities, Pyramids and Temples Egypt has more to offer. It is romantic cruises down the Nile, and it is a cultural experience like none you have ever experienced. Egypt is a land of beauty, mystery and excitement.

Place of Interest



Cairo is an intoxicating blend of cultures, history and peoples, which has fascinated travelers. It was a source of amazement to travelers even at the time of the Mameluks. But the indomitable city of Cairo is still in the eyes of the Egyptians 'The Victorious', 'Mother of the world' or simply 'Misr', the name for Egypt as a whole.

PyramidsAlthough the construction of the pyramids was only an episode in the long history of the pharaohs, this period has left us some of the most impressive monuments that can be seen. Besides the three giants of Gizeh, more than 70 pyramids can be counted along the Nile.

Cairo's underground - the fourth pyramidOver a million passengers travel daily between Choubra el-Kheima in the north and Helwan in the south on its smoothly operating trains. A second line linking the two banks was opened in 1998 and has been extended as far as Giza.

Al Giza Pyramids Guarded by the familiar lone lion-bodied Sphinx are the three Great Pyramids of Giza. Over 4,000 years ago, the mummified bodies of Kings Cheops, Kefren and Mykerinos were ferried down the Nile to be buried and prepared for the journey to the afterlife within these massive monuments. The largest, oldest and finest of all three is Cheop's Pyramid, simply known as the "Great Pyramid". It was the tallest structure in the world until the end of the nineteenth century (145 meters). But Kefren's Pyramid, Cheop's son and successor, makes a bigger first impression. On higher ground with its limestone cap still intact, it looks loftier even though it's 4 meters shorter.

MonumentsMost of the Egyptian monuments are from the pharaohic era, but are also complemented by expressions of other cultures. Colossi and Sphinxes exist alongside amphitheatres, temples and Greco-Roman columns. A history book open to the heavens

The Great Sphinx (Giza) Like the broken arms of the Venus de Milo, the Great Sphinx's long lost nose has made it all the more iconic. Standing guard at the hallowed entrance to the Great Pyramids of Giza, the human-headed, lion-bodied Sphinx is the oldest of all Egypt's superhuman stone sculptures. It is also the most instantly recognizable. Originally hewn from a gigantic piece of limestone bedrock, it was covered in plaster and paint in its youth. But the winds, waters and sands of the Giza Plateau have taken their toll. Once upon a time, the Great Sphinx also wore a Pharaoh's royal beard. Part of it is in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the other part is in the British Museum in London.

Colossi of Memnon (Luxor) The faceless giants stand in front of the first pylon with their backs to the mountain. They represent the pharaoh's sovereign majesty seated on his throne. The funerary complex, of which nothing remains, was the biggest on the west bank.

Pompey's Pillar Majestic but solitary, Pompey's Pillar is a 25 meter column of solid red granite, from the bottom of its Greek inscribed base to the top of its Romanesque capital. Surprisingly, Pompey's Pillar has nothing to do with its namesake. It was built in honour of the Emperor Diocletian in 292 AD.

Temples Life in Ancient Egypt revolved around religion. The pharaohs traced their ancestry back to the gods of the Egyptian pantheon. Different pharaohs allied themselves to different cults, and the elaborate temples they built cemented their own political status. With intricately painted walls, vast colonnaded courts and columned hypostyle halls, the temples of Ancient Egypt are among its greatest cultural triumphs.

The Temples of Abu Simbel (Nubia)Of all the pharaohs, Ramses II was the most prolific builder of monuments and temples. Two of his greatest temples, the Great Temple of Abu Simbel and its smaller cousin, the Temple of Hathor are at Abu Simbel. Both temples originally sat some sixty metres below where you find them today. They were part of a massive UNESCO operation to save Egypt's Great Temples from Lake Nasser's rising waters. Embedded into the mountain itself, the temples had to be cut free from the rock and painstakingly dismantled and rebuilt.

The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Thebes) At the base of a lofty limestone mountain in the desert at Thebes nestles Queen Hatshepsut's astonishing terraced temple. Hatshepsut was Egypt's greatest female Pharaoh. She fought off male pretenders to her throne for over 20 prosperous and peaceful years. Partly embedded into the mountain itself, the temple is almost forty metres wide. Its honeycomb colonnades pick up the natural lines and recesses of its mountainous backdrop. Hatshepsut's temple is essentially an extension of Mentuhotep II's temple, though several times its size. The two blend in so well together, they are indistinguishable from a distance.

The Temple of Luxor Though Ramses II's triumphant twin statues stand sentry at its entrance, it was Amenhotep III who built the bewildering Temple of Luxor.Over the years, several of Egypt's legendary rulers added to the glory of the Temple of Luxor, from Tutankhamun to Alexander the Great.

The Temple of Karnak Though Ramses II's triumphant twin statues stand sentry at its entrance, it was Amenhotep III who built the bewildering Temple of Luxor.Over the years, several of Egypt's legendary rulers added to the glory of the Temple of Luxor, from Tutankhamun to Alexander the Great.

Nile Cruises It's also one of the most relaxing and luxurious ways to take in a great many of the major cultural landmarks and sites. Long ago, Egypt's green and fertile savannahs turned into barren, sandy deserts, obliging its inhabitants to leave. And so they clustered around coasts and waterways, from the Nile's fertile banks to the Red Sea and Mediterranean coast.

Short cruises If you don't have days on end to glide slowly along the Nile's waters, there are short half-day or one-day cruises available, for sightseeing and spectacular views. As you sail along, your knowledgeable guide is on hand to point out the highlights and satisfy your cultural curiosity. You can take a short cruise down the Nile from practically any beach.
