History of Old Egypt: Milling cutter tombs
In 6 kilometres to the North from El Minya there is a turn to the East, on a back road which conducts to steep rocks. Huge, as houses in Egypt, splinters of rocks note the track beginning to Milling cutter tombs (are open once a day, with 9:00 till 17:00; entrance free). To these rocky tombs of an era of V and VI dynasties, called by name archeologist Harry Frezera who has opened them, it is possible to pass on narrow штольням. Two tombs as the history of Old Egypt narrates, belonged to two grandees with similar names – Nikaankh. In the first tomb there are damaged statues of the carrier, his spouse, children and the grandson, covered with a set of hieroglyphs. Sculptures from the 2nd tomb have better remained; pay attention to smartly executed folds of clothes on Nikaankh’s statue.
Temples of Old Egypt: sanctuaries Hatkhor, Amon and Sebeka
Through two kilometres to the North new branch of the road conducts to Tekhna-el-Dzhebel village («Under a hill»), located behind earth embankments and ruins of brick structures of the Ancient Egyptian city of Dekhe – there is no (Forehead), known to Greeks as Akoris. The long ladder, is no time decorated from both parties altars and statues, conducts to vertical rocks where there are the unfinished rocky temples of Old Egypt devoted to Amon and Sebek (to god crocodile, known to Greeks under an imenovaniye Dry). In a penultimate room of the first temple there are two niches in what there is no time mummies of crocodiles were stored; having carefully glanced in deep mine, it is possible to behold such mummy under the second temple. Having rounded the rock, you will see the sanctuary Hatkhor standing at dizzy height – it is heavy to present that it was ever used for religious ceremonies. The trip to Egypt is worthy of it, that it to behold.
