1. Definition

Memphis is an ancient Egyptian city - one of the World Heritage Sites - and it was founded in 3200 BC by King Narmer. It was the capital of Egypt in the era of the Old Kingdom (dynasties 3-6) as well it was the era when god Ptah (god of craftsman and architects) was worshiped.

2. History

Memphis was known as the “White Wall,” most probably referring to the palace of the king, which was built with whitewashed bricks, until the 26th century BC. The latest name of Memphis is a Greek translation of the Egyptian Men-nefer, which is the name of a nearby pyramid built in the 6th Dynasty. The ruins of this ancient capital are located 20 km on the west bank of the Nile River, in a village called "Meet Raheena" in Badrasheen Among the most important monuments in the open museum of Meet Raheena - ruins left from ancient Memphis - are the statue of Ramses II at the entrance and the huge statue of Ramses II which lies on the ground. You can enjoy this trip with exploration for all the charming Sights in Memphis with Magic Life Tours.
