Your first stop in Egypt will be in Cairo, where Marvelous pyramids are standing together, surrounding the whole are of Giza. What an amazing design! One can almost see himself as a Pharaoh standing beneath that Pyramids during the time when Pharaohs ruled and the Gods were worshiped. In the distance you would see workers building the next pyramid while Queens and Pharaohs would lounge around, supervising.
Imagine Lotus flowers and papyrus growing alongside the majestic river, workers making papyrus paper which would later be placed in the tombs. All the work and effort that was placed into the tombs was incredible and the meaning behind each God and the hieroglyphics are enough to boggle anyone's mind.
Your second stop will be in Egypt's sunniest southern city of Aswan, the magic of the south. 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.
Finish your lovely tour in the south of Egypt in Luxor, the city which boasts the extremely unique collection of the Egyptian temples in the east bank of the Nile. However, they kept their tombs at the west bank of the Nile. What amazing understanding! The ancient Egyptians managed to understand the circle of the world from the sequence of the sun rising. So they used to keep their daily life objects at the east bank of the Nile (where the sun rises everyday) and their funerary objects at the west bank (where the sun dies everyday).
