step pyramid

Saqqara and Pyramids and Egyptian museum Cairo day tour

After breakfast, see Memphis, which was founded by King Menes and was the capital of Old Egypt during the Old Kingdom. Then proceed to the Step Pyramid at Sakkara, which was designed by the architect Imhotep for his master, King Zoser. Djoser’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara is one of the most important archeological sites in all of Egypt. While it may not be as impressive or
as famous as the Giza Pyramids, this structure predates them, and it is vital to archeologists’  understanding of the development of pyramid construction. The Step Pyramid was built in the 27th century BC, during the 3rd dynasty rule of Djoser. It is the first pyramid built in Egypt, and while it is not a ‘true pyramid’ with smooth sides, like those at Giza and Dahshur, it remains an important stepping stone in their development. It is also the first large-scale cut-stone structure in the world.

The structure consists of six distinct layers, or steps, of diminishing size built on top of one another. Archeologists understand this to be an embellishment of earlier and earlier practices where pharaohs were buried under a mastaba, a flat rectangular structure somewhat like a large grave covering.

Djoser’s builders decided to stack several of these structures to create a more imposing monument to the pharaoh, creating the structure we see today that stands 203 feet tall. In doing so, they took the first step toward the creation of the pyramids that have made Ancient Egypt famous throughout the ages.

Giza pyramids

Cheops Pyramid King Khufu

Chefren, and Mykerinus at Giza Plateau. Then proceed to visit the Great Pyramid. The head of a pharaoh with a lion’s body dates from the time of Chephren. also includes a visit to the Valley Temple, which belongs to the Pyramids of Chephren.

The Great Pyramids

The number one activity in Cairo is by far the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. Dated almost 5000 years ago, these monuments and their great conservation state are some of the greatest things you can experience with the naked eye. Located in the Giza Complex on the west side of the Nile River banks, the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx are Cairo’s best-kept treasures.

It has many tombs. It consists of the great Giza Pyramids (Khufu, Khafre, and Mankaure), which are considered one of the seven wonders of the world, and the Khufu Pyramid is considered to be the grandest in the complex. This complex also contains the amazing Sphinx and the Valley Temple. It's an astonishing engineering accomplishment, as it's the greatest pyramid that has ever been built. It was built by King Khufu. It contains about 2300000 blocks. These white Tura limestone blocks give the pyramid a smooth surface.

The Great Sphinx

It is the oldest known monumental sculpture in the world, and all tourists come from around the world to witness the beauty of its shape (ahead of a man's head) and the body of a human, which has many spiritual and mythical meanings.

Evening trip to attend the Sound & Light show in the Pyramids area included. Overnight in Cairo.

Philae Temple

This beautiful temple complex is one of the most picturesque in all of Egypt. It sits on Aglika Island just south of the old Aswan Dam and you must ride a water taxi to the island to get to the ruins. The temple was moved to its current location following the construction of the High Dam, which threatened to submerge it permanently.

Kom Ombo temple

kom_ombo_Aswan_Egypt

Along with Esna and Edfu, Kom Ombo is the third major stop that most of the Nile cruises between Luxor and Aswan make on their journey. Located only 30 miles north of Aswan, it is also easy to visit Kom Ombo on a day trip by car, however, The setting of this Temple of Sobek, the crocodile god, makes an approach by water the far superior way to visit this site.

The temple is perched atop a picturesque bluff alongside the river, and while there are no longer any crocodiles in the river or in the sacred lake inside the temple complex, this riverside temple is still worth a visit. Like the other two sites between Luxor and Aswan, Kom Ombo dates from the Ptolemaic Dynasty and it was only completed under Roman rule. The temple has a dual dedication to Sobek, and Horus, and the plan of the temple reflects this dual purpose.

Like at Esna, the temple at Edfu is a late construction. It was built during the Greco-Roman Period, but the builders painstakingly preserved the form of Egypt’s true pharaohs. As a result, a visit to Edfu allows you to see what all of the other ruined temples around Egypt might have looked like had they been built 2,000 years later.

Luxor  1 day tour from Safaga port

The Karnak Temple dates back from around 2055 BC to around 100 AD. It was built as a cult temple and was dedicated to the gods Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. Being the largest building for religious purposes ever to be constructed, the Karnak Temple was known as the “most select of places” by ancient Egyptians.

During the New Kingdom, the Karnak Temple Complex was the center of the ancient faith while power was concentrated at Thebes (modern-day Luxor), and its significance is reflected in its enormous size. In addition to its religious significance, it was also a treasury, administrative center, and palace for the New Kingdom pharaohs. It is, to this day, considered the largest temple complex ever constructed anywhere in the world.

Luxor Temple

best price to 1 day Luxor & Karnak Temple

On the east bank of the Nile River, in the south of Egypt, the World’s Largest Outdoor Museum, Luxor City, contains one of the most beautiful temples standing. The Luxor Temple is a mark of ancient Egyptian civilization and a strikingly graceful monument in the heart of modern Luxor.

Different from other temples in Luxor, the Luxor Temple was not built in adoration for a god or to a god figure of the kings and pharaohs; instead, it was built in dedication to the rejuvenation of kingship. Many kings might have been crowned at the Temple of Luxor, whether crowned in reality or conceptually, as in the case of Alexander the Great, who claimed he was crowned at Luxor, although facts appear to indicate that he had never traveled south of Memphis, which is considered the modern city of Cairo.

including the contents of Tutankhamun’s tomb and most of the mummies that have been discovered since the 19th century. The museum’s exhibits span from the beginning of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt (approximately 2700 BC) through the Greco-Roman period. The building consists of two floors.

’s old bazaar. Then we move on to Coptic Cairo to visit the

Hanging Church

Hanging Church Coptic Cairo

The famous miracle of moving the Moqattam Mountain is closely related to al-Moallaqa. Al-Mu’izz, a Fatimid khalifa, asked Patriarch Abraham (975–978), the 62nd Patriarch, to prove the truth of a verse in the Bible. Al-Mu’izz asked Patriarch Abraham to move the Moqattam Mountain in order to prove the words of the gospel

“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain: Remove from hence to yonder place, and it shall remove“ (Matthew 17–20).
After three days of praying and fasting in front of the painting of the Virgin Mary depicted on a column in al-Moallaqa, the Virgin Mary appeared to Patriarch Abraham in a vision and told him what to do. The painting of the Virgin Mary exists in the church to this day. Al-Mu’izz was convinced of the truth of Christian belief and allowed the Coptic Church certain privileges.

There are three sanctuaries on the eastern side of the church, the one in the middle is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the one to the left is named after St. George, and the one to the right is named after John the Baptist. Inside the sanctuaries, painted baldachins are placed above the altars.
The wooden screen is a unique piece of art and is richly decorated with geometric patterns and crosses in ebony and ivory.

Ben Ezra Synagogue

Located deep in the winding alleys of Coptic Cairo, Ben Ezra Synagogue is the oldest Jewish temple in Cairo, dating from the 9th century AD. Like almost all of Egypt’s synagogues, it is simply a tourist attraction today following the departure of nearly all of Egypt’s significant Jewish community during the 1950s after the founding of Israel and the Free Officers’ Revolution, but this site still holds great importance in the contemporary history of Judaism.
