‘Travelling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller’- 14th century Moroccan explorer, Ibn Battuta”
Here is the famed Giza Plateau, home of the Great Pyramids; sacred ground for the ancient Egyptians for two millennia.
King Khufu raised his giant pyramid around 2560 B.C., during Egypt’s mighty 4th Dynasty. Almost 2,000 years later, ca. 600 B.C. in the 26th Dynasty, the pyramid chapel of Queen Henutsen, attached to the southernmost of the three subsidiary pyramids of Khufu’s Great Pyramid, was converted into a temple for the goddess Isis. Isis became known as ‘Mistress of the Pyramids’.
