Egyptmania Package


Egyptmania Package Nothing compares Egypt! This is what you will feel after landing in Egypt, land of secrets. Of course, your trip to Egypt will be the unforgettable one in your life, as Egypt looks like a unique country. Although this country consists of many various cultures, religions and traditions, it managed to mix all of those differences and create a unified country with special culture.
Your Egypt’s trip begins with the capital, Cairo. The city of Cairo was built in the 10th Century AD. However, the land composing the present-day city was the original site of national capitals whose remnants remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Cairo is also associated with Ancient Egypt due to its proximity to Sakkara and Memphis.
Look at Egypt’s map; go with your eyes to the south, where you will find Luxor. The city of Luxor is considered to be one of the most fascinating cities in Egypt. It contains the largest and most unique collection of the Egyptian temples and in its western hills laid the royal cemetery of our kings and nobles.
Luxor took many names during its long history such as (w3st). This ancient Egyptian name symbolizes the rule and authority in ancient Egypt. The Greeks called it finally (Thebes) and Homer, the famous Greek poet called it (the city of the hundred gates). Again Arabs called it the city of el kessour ''palaces'', and with time this name was abbreviated to Luxor nowadays.
Your next stop will be in Aswan, the magic of the south. Aswan is a city in the south of Egypt, the capital of the Aswan Governorate. As rich the land is in its commercial affairs, the history of Aswan is more affluent and mysterious. The ancient Aswan was known as the Swenet. People believed it to be not only the end of the world but also the consecrated genesis of the Blue Nile. For over a few centuries, the city acted as the doorway to Africa and Nubian lands.
The ancient Souan or Aswan was also famous for its granite quarries. Thousands of Egyptian statutes, obelisks, shrines and even pyramids are constructed out of the Syenite granite mine in Aswan. The city of Aswan was also a crucial military base of the ancient Egypt. Whenever the reign of the land passed on to a new dynasty, security of the city was tightened the more. Aswan was always a garrison town. Mention of Aswan can be found in the writings of Herodotus, Strabo, Pliny and Ptolemy.
When talking about the south of Egypt, we must mention the lovely city of Abu Simbel. Abu Simbel lies south of Aswan on the western bank of the Nile, 180 miles south of the First Cataract in what was Nubia. The site was known as Meha in ancient times and was first documented in the 18th Dynasty, when Ay and Horemheb had rock-cut chapels hewn in the hills to the south.
