    Travel video about destination Mempish amp; Sakkara in Egypt.Around
    2900 B.C., when Upper and Lower Egypt became one Great Empire, the
    Pharaohs declared Memphis, which lies in the southern Nile Delta, as
    their capital city.During its golden years in the second millennium
    B.C., Memphis extended 15 km, from Gizeh to Sakkara. Up until the
    time of the Roman Empire, this ancient city’s former buildings had
    been constructed from air-dried bricks and therefore, due to this
    process, sadly did not survive the years. Granite and limestone were
    used solely for its Temples, Palaces And Statues. The frightening
    and dismissive gesture of the Sphinx was meant to frighten away
    grave robbers and guard the Necropolis, the place of the dead. Its
    lion’s body and human head symbolize courage and mental prowess.
    Apart from Gizeh, Sakkara, in Lower Egypt, was an important city
    dedicated to the dead. The mother of all pyramids lies here, Pharaoh
    Djosers Step Pyramid, which dates back to the year 2600 B.C. For
    almost 5000 years these stones have survived the forces of nature
    and who knows what future excavations may reveal from the sands of
    the Egyptian desert, sands that are not only of time but which held
    the hopes of the pharaohs and created among the richest treasures
    known to mankind.
