Pyramids of Giza

The Pyramids of Giza are the only remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and are one of the most famous structures in the world. They are about 15 kilometers from downtown Cairo, the capital of Egypt, right on the outskirts of Giza, a suburb of Cairo with 2 million inhabitants. The distance from the city center of Giza is around 8 kilometers. The whole area is on the western side of the Nile, but some distance from it, which is why it is in the desert.

In addition to the three main pyramids, the Pyramid of Cheops, the Pyramid of Chephren and the Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramids of Gizeh also include the Great Sphinx of Gizeh, several other small side pyramids in which, for example, the wives of the pharaohs were buried, as well as workers' villages, temples and burial grounds.

The pyramids of Giza were built in the years 2620 to 2500 BC, which corresponds to the 4th dynasty. But even before that, in the 1st to 3rd dynasties, the approximately 3 square kilometer area of the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx was used as the tomb of the pharaohs. However, it is unclear to what extent the tombs that were created at that time were destroyed during the construction of the pyramids.

Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum on the east bank of the Nile in Cairo was founded in 1857 by August Mariette and today includes around 150,000 exhibits from 4,500 years of Egyptian history. Although only a small part is accessible to visitors at all, the time available during a trip to Egypt is by far not enough to gain any insight, let alone an overview of the exhibits. It may even be difficult or impossible for the uninitiated to comprehend and classify the diversity and development of architecture and art. The Sphinx of Giza

Sphinx of Giza

The Sphinx Giza is the largest Egyptian sculpture. It was carved out of the limestone rock of the Giza Plateau and depicts a reclining lion with a human head and the so-called Nemes headscarf. The Sphinx was originally painted with reddish ocher and also had a goatee, which fell off in ancient times. Pieces of it are now in the British Museum in London.

Cairo Citadel

In 1176 AD, the legendary Ayyubid Sultan Salah ed-Din (Saladin) had the citadel built on a foothill of the Moqattam Mountains based on the model of Syrian city fortresses to protect against the Crusaders. However, it was not completed until 30 years later, in 1207 AD, by the nephew of Salah ed-Din

Frankish crusaders were also used in the construction. Since some of the stone material needed was fetched from the small pyramids of Giza, this soon led to rumors of a "night-haunting ghost" of the pharaoh taking revenge on the desecration of his tomb.

In the centuries that followed, Saladin's successors expanded and rebuilt the hilltop fortress several times. The older buildings were mostly demolished and reused. This was of practical and probably also magical-propagandistic importance, because it meant a victory over the past and the repeatedly changing ruler dynasties. The citadel remained - with few interruptions - royal residence until 1874.

When the Albanian Mohammed Ali, still an Ottoman pasha, took over Egypt, he had a mosque built in place of the old Mameluke palace, which bore his name and now houses his sarcophagus. The dynasty founded by Mohammed Ali lasted around 150 years. At the beginning of the 19th century he made the citadel his residence. In 1811 he liberated the country from Ottoman rule by inviting all 480 Mamluk leaders to his hilltop fortress and then having them murdered. With this "assassination" he got rid of the still powerful elite of the Mamluk leaders and opened Egypt to the west.

step pyramid

The mighty burial ground of Saqqara, the huge burial ground of ancient Memphis, lies about 15 km south of the Pyramid of Cheops, on the edge of the Libyan desert. This extends over an area of 7 km north-south length and 500-1500 m east-west width and has funerary monuments from almost all eras of Egyptian history. This necropolis is probably named after the falcon-headed necropolis god Sokar and mainly offers us tombs from the Old Kingdom. More than 20 kings were buried here, including Pharaoh Djoser (Zoser, 2nd king of the 3rd Dynasty). Above all, pharaohs of the 3rd - 6th dynasty found their last resting place here, as well as deserving members of their court and citizens of Memphis who could afford this place. The most imposing building of the necropolis is the step pyramid of Djoser. During his 19-year reign, his architect and supreme chancellor, Imhotep, built the so-called 60-meter-tall step pyramid of Saqqara. According to Manetho, Imhotep is credited with inventing building with hewn stones. The complete mastery of the technology at the beginning of its introduction is astounding. Today, Djoser's step pyramid and the tomb complex surrounding it are the first large stone structures in Egypt. Their shape can be explained as a further development from the earlier rectangular tombs, which were called mastaba (Arabic bank) because of their shape and date from the 1st and 2nd dynasties.
