The Valley of the Kings, here, over 62 tombs of the greatest pharaohs were discovered. As the ancient Egyptians believed in the afterlife, they prepared their tombs with texts on walls and tools to help them in the next world.

The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, located at the cliff of El Deri El Bahri, the Queen’s architect Senmout designed this temple at a very special place surrounded by mountain, modeled after the temple of Mentuhotep II.

Two Colossi of Memnon, they are giant stone statues of Amenophis III; the Romans called it Memnon after the hero of the Trojan War from Greek Mythology.
