Welcome to Egypt


Early Greeks, Romans and others came here just for fun and to see the wonders of some of mankind's earliest triumphs. For thousands of years, it has been the playground of emperors and kings, we hope you will take the time to find out why.

For many, the scope of Egypt's history is difficult to comprehend. Its history spans some seven millenniums, and encompasses the origin of civilization, the rise of the Greeks and Romans, Christian and Islamic religions, the colonial era when first France and then the English ruled the country,  finally, a return to independence. Egypt has played an important role through all of these eras and today one can find monuments that evidence Egypt’s role in most of the world’ historic events.

Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian and intrepid traveler, described Egypt long ago as
“the gift of the Nile”
and since then, this gem in Africa’s crown-home to the ancient pharaohs, Pyramids, Temples, Monasteries, an assortment of gods and King Tutankhamen himself- has captured the imagination and interest of many.

A comprehensible knowledge of Egyptian religion is indispensable for anyone who wishes to grasp the essence of the Egyptian civilization.
Religion had deeply dominated all aspects of Egyptian culture--art, science, government, and law. Egyptian religion can be characterized by its infinite complexity and diversity. Muslim (mostly Sunni) represents nearly 90% (official estimate) the rest is Coptic Christian and other (official estimate).
