The Great Pyramid of Khufu is a true living miracle as it is the last intact structure of the seven wonders of the ancient world, it was constructed in 2580 BC in 20 years using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone each weighing 2.5 tons and a workforce of 100,000 free skilled workers. The great pyramid stands at the height of 147 m (481 ft) which made it the tallest building in the world for 3800 years. The great pyramid is still the source of great ability to turn heads due to its complex interior compared to its massive magnitude.
The Great Sphinx has stood its ground for countless years acting as a source of inspiration for many artists, and poets from all over the world as its origin and age are shrouded with a lot of mystery. It has the shape of a mythical creature called the sphinx which has the body of a lion and the head of a man who probably was king Khafre to represent power and wisdom. The Sphinx has a height of 73 m (240 ft) and 20 m (66 ft) and was carved out of single limestone rock in only 3 years using about 100 free skilled workers.
The Valley Temple is where immortality was achieved using the Mummification process, the valley was constructed within Egypt's old kingdom (2686 2134 BC). It is one of the best-preserved archaeological sites and the source of great information about the mummification of ancient Egypt. The valley is made entirely from limestone & granite and holds magnificent diorite statues of king Khafre.
The Grand Egyptian Museum is a golden portal leading to cosmic ancient Egyptian creations of celestial intelligence that were cultivated across 5000 years of continuous innovation and vivid artistic imagination.

The dam was designed as a cooperation project with the Moscow-based Hydro project Institute in order to have better control over Nile flooding, generate Hydroelectricity, and provide increased water storage for irrigation in its reservoir lake Nasser.
The Unfinished Obelisk was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the entrance of the Karnak temple. It was known as "Tekhenu" which means "to pierce the sky", it is highly important because it was able to show how Obelisks were made. It reached a height of 42 m and weighed 1200 tons. Unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and remained at the same location even today.
Philea temple is the gem of Aswan & the mother of the ancient Egyptian mythology as it holds on its walls the" Myth of Osiris" in which the husband of Isis "Osiris" is killed by His brother Set the god of the desert of chaos out of pure hatred & envy then Osiris is resurrected to be the ruler of the underworld afterward Set is defeated by Hours the sky God the son of Isis and Osiris starting age of peace, prosperity & justice. The temple was relocated in the 60s to the island of Agilkia as a part of a rescue mission led by UNESCO after the construction of the Aswan High Dam.

Kom Ombo Temple "The Hill Of Gold" was constructed in the Greco-Roman period between 205 BC & 180 BC. The unique design of the temple is a distinctive double design divided into two identical sectors, one for the crocodile god Sobek and the other for the falcon sky god Horus.
Edfu temple is one of the last temples ever built in Ancient Egypt during the Ptolemaic era between 237 BC & 57 BC to be the official worship house of the sky falcon god Horus. It is believed it was built on the same spot where the battle between the devil god Set and Horus took Place according to Osiris Myth. It came into light when it was excavated in 1860 by Auguste Mariette a French Egyptologist 1860, the architecture & interior of the Edfu Temple is beautiful as it mixes Greek and Egyptian design in the finest manner.

The Valley became a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979 due to its significance & beauty through the ages.
Hatshepsut Temple is a perfect example of allure and class, it was known as Djoser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies) and showcases the grandeur of the new kingdom and the vision of one of the most successful and powerful rulers in the history of Ancient Egypt Queen Hatshepsut. It was designed in 1479 BC and took 15 years to construct, the design of the temple is based on the concept of Classical Architecture as it has three levels with two wide ramps in a central position joining the levels together, and holds some of the most majestic statues, artifacts, monuments in all of Luxor.

Colossi of Memnon are two colossal blocks of quartzite sandstone standing at the height of 18 m (60ft) weighing 720 tons each and have the shape of Pharaoh Amenhotep III(1386-1350). The colossi were damaged due to a large earthquake in 27 BC but were reconstructed again in 199 AD. The statues were very famous during the Greco-Roman period due to The Vocal Memnon which resulted from the statues making a singing voice from time to time at dawn which was nothing more than the sound of the wind passing through the statue.
Karnak temple is one of the holiest places in the world and is one of the largest religious man-made constructions in the world. it was known as Ipet-isu "The Most Selected Of Places and Pr-Imn House Of Amon". It dates to more than 4000 years when it was the center of the religious worship of the entire ancient Egyptian kingdom for more than 1500 years to many deities but was dedicated mainly to the Theban triad which consisted of God Amun with his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut and his son the moon god Khnsou, plus other gods like the great Osiris, Montu, Ptah and Isis.
