Tomb of Ankhtifi on a Tour to ElMoalla from Luxor

Some friends had requested to take them on a tour to ELMoalla ,I'v read about it before but the truth is I never visited before,so I started some searches and refreshment readings about the site,frankly there is not much about ,as there is not nuch left on the site ,here is some of what I'v got:
Gebelein is an archaeological site located about 32 kilometers south of Luxor (ancient Thebes) on the western bank of the Nile (The archaeological site is actually known as Naga el-Gherira). There are two hills at the site that give it its Arabic name of Gebelein, as well as its ancient Egyptian name of Inr-ti, meaning "two rocks". In Greek times, it was known as Aphroditopolis, and also Pathyris, from Old Egyptian Per-Hathor ("Domain of Hathor). The site is really not of much interest to casual tourists as there is little in the form of visual remains, though the hills provide a good view of the Nile Valley. It may be of some interest, however, more because of the arti…

"The Birth of Moses through the Exodus"

Egypt Jewish Heritage tour package :
The Pharaoh tried to get rid of the thread of the Tradition inherited from Noah, by depriving Moses of his birthright and also proving him as thecoming of justice and can be seen as the Star named 41 Arietis of Aries.    The birth and future destiny of Moses were said to have been prophesied to Pharaoh, who then ordered the murder of all Hebrew boys, so states the Talmud.


   Josephus in the Antiquities of the Jews (Book II, Chapter IX) "2.    One of those sacred scribes (Jannes or Jambres in the Targum of Johnathan) who are very sagacious in foretelling future events truly, told the king, that about this time there would be a child born to the Israelites, who, if he were reared, would bring the Egyptian dominion low, and would raise the Israelites; that he would excel all men in virtue, and obtain a glory that would be remembered through all ages.    Which thing was so feared by the king, that according to this man's opinion, he commanded t…

"Translation of the figures in the Zodiac of Denderah"

we can see in the image the symbols
of the twelve zodiac
signs
, then the planets
(Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn),
the Moon, Sirius, Orion,
the three known constellations
of the north
,
(Draco, Ursa Minor
and Ursa Major) and
the axis of the temple.
The Duck is seen on a
temple north of Esneh as

similar to the number 36 Decan or the Aquila character between Capricorn and Sagittarius.
   I have added the number sequence from 1 to 36 to the image above to show a precise count of the 36 decans.  The 36 characters proceed in a counter-clockwise orientation on the outer edge of the Denderah circle.  These are called decans because in a circle of 360 degrees divided by 36 it equals 10, therefore deca, ten.  As you can see this allows three decans per zodiac sign (every 30 degrees).  E. C. Krupp states that the images around the perimeter are definitely decan stars only nobody knows which ones are which stars.
   Notice that the large disk with the eight symbols insi…

Das Tal der Koenige

Die geographische Lage
Das Gebiet bei Theben lieferte ein vorzügliches Gebiet für das Anlegen einer königlichen Nekropole. Vom Westufer des Nils erstreckt sich eine flache Ebene zu einer Bergkette mit zahlreichen abgeschiedenen Tälern, die sich zwischen hohen Klippen und weichem Gestein durchschlängeln. Die Ebene eignete sich ideal für das Errichten der königlichen Totentempel. Die Täler hingegen boten genügend Platz, um viele kunstvoll in den Fels gehauene Gräber anzulegen. Auch aus symbolischen Gründen wählten die Alten Ägypter diesen Platz für das Errichten einer Nekropole. Blickt man von der Stadt Theben über den Nil auf das thebanische Bergmassiv, dann ähnelt es in der Gestalt einer riesigen Version der Hieroglyphe für "Horizont". Es ist das ägyptische Symbol für das Gebiet der auf- und untergehenden Sonne. Im Neuen…
