Three sides of the shaft were completed before a flaw was discovered in the stone and the obelisk was abandoned. Had it been completed, it would have weighed an astonishing 1.8 million kg (1,197 tons) and stood 41 m (134 ft) high
  • Temple of Philae, this Graeco-Roman temple dedicated to the cult of Isis. It is situated on its own picturesque island in the middle of the Nile and the only way to visit it is by motor launch, which makes for a supremely dramatic approach. It lies between the Aswan and High Dams, a 15-minute drive south of town.
  • The largest of the islands at Aswan, Elephantine Island is also the site of the town’s oldest settlement. In ancient times it was the cult centre of the ram headed god of the Nile flood, Khnum. Among the ruins at the southern end are those of the Temple of Khnum, built byNectanebo in the 4th century BC. Regular ferries connect the island with the Cornice.

(Temple of Kom Ombo) that has an unusual symmetrically twinned architecture in which all rooms and doors are mirrored on the other side of the building. Once inside, you’ll see that there are two sanctuaries in the middle of the temple, each a mirror image of the other.
  • Visit Temple of Horus Situated between Luxor and Aswan, the Temple of Horus at Edfu dates from 237 BC, a time when Egypt was ruled by the successors of Alexander the Great. These rulers copied earlier temples, perfectly preserving the architectural traditions of their Pharaonic predecessors as can be seen in this vast temple.

Everything is on a gigantic scale:  the site covers over 2 sq km. Karnak was the most important place of worship in Egypt during the New Kingdom. It was called Ipet-Sut, meaning ‘The Most Esteemed of Places’; Karnak is its Arabic name meaning ‘fortified settlement. The complex of Karnak includes three main enclosures: AMUN TEMPLE ENCLOSURE – MAIN AXIS,MUT TEMPLE ENCLOSURE and MONTU TEMPLE ENCLOSURE.
  • Our next destination will be Temple of Luxor; it was built essentially by two kings (Amenhotop III and Ramses II, also several rulers contributed to its relief decorations and inscriptions, added minor structures or alterations. The temple was built for the Opet celebrations, when the statues of Amun, Mut and Khonsu were annually reunited during the inundation season with that of Amun of Opet. A mosque was built in one of the interior courts for the local sheikh (holy man) Abu al-Haggag. In front of the temple is the beginning of the avenue of sphinxes that ran all the way to the temples at Karnak 3km to the north, which is now being entirely excavated.

  • We proceed to the Mortuary Temple of Hatchepsut; the temple is a partly rock-cut and partly free standing terraced structure. The temple was vandalized over the centuries: Tuthmosis III removed his stepmother’s name whenever he could, Akhenaton removed all references to Amun, and the early Christians turned it into a monastery, Deir al-Bahri (Monastery of the North), and defaced the pagan reliefs. The temple consists of:great court,Chapel of Anubis,Punt Colonnade, Hathor Chapel.
  • Visiting Colossi of Memnon, two statues of Amenhotep III are all that remain of a massive compound this Pharaoh built to house his mortuary temple. The magnificent colossi, each cut from a single block of stone and weighing 1000 tones, were already a great tourist attraction during Graeco-Roman times, when the statues were attributed to Memnon, the legendary African king who was slain by Achilles during the Trojan War.

It is entered through a soaring portal with a stalactite hood, which leads through to a simple but impressive courtyard with four massive arched recesses. The sultan himself lies at rest in his tomb chamber, to the right of the prayer niche. The neighboring mosque, Al-Rifai, although similar in scale to Sultan Hassan, was built over 500 years later
  • The Al-Rifa'i Mosquewas constructed in two phases over the period between 1869 and 1912, when it was finally completed.
  • Citadel of Salah el Din: Overlooking the city from a rocky spur of the Muqattam Hills, the Citadel is a sizeable fortress, which from its founding in the 12th century, served as the royal residence and barracks until the late 19th century.
