Sultan Mohamed Shah; Aga Khan III, was having troubles for motion in his legs and many doctors tried to save him the pain but in vain; as the locals says; he was told to visit Aswan where he was buried in the sand everyday till he got better and decided to have a resident there to spend his winter season with his family and constructed a mausoleum in the Fatimid style where he asked to be buried on the same land he was cured. He was buried there 2 years after he died, later his wife Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, had a memorial of laying a red rose on the Aga Khan tomb everyday which is honored till forever now. #egyptscoop #egypt#aswan#tomb#travel#explore#tourism#tourist#instatravel#reading#river#nileriver

Al-Maqrizi described it as looking like a five-storied mountain. The Meidum pyramid was investigated by Napoleon’s expedition in 1799 which is now only three stories tall on a hill at Al Wasta, Beni Seuf. It has been said that it’s the second after Djoser’s step pyramid, started as a one but then converted into a true pyramid and may have been originally built for Huni, the last pharaoh of the 3rd Dynasty, and continued by King Sneferu. Later, when it was transferred to a pyramid the weight of the added outer casing was pressing down so hard that the entire structure collapsed to the monument left today. #egyptscoop #egypt#pyramid#history#ancientegypt#explore#travel#culture#reading#tourism#tourist

Sultan Al Ashraf Abul Nasr Sayf Al Din built a vibrant Hammam Inal (bathhouse) in 1456 on Al-Moez street. The main entrance leads to a broken corridor so that pedestrians in the street cannot see from inside. In the north side of this room is a door opening leading to a dressing room, the marble-clad central room is topped by a domed ceiling studded with tiny colored glass windows that allow in shafts of light with small openings for ventilation.
Inal was a bath for women and unfortunately got on fire and they had to stay in and die in the fire or come out naked. Some women ran naked for their lives and others who were too ashamed unfortunately passed away and from here came the proverb:
"Those who feared are dead".. #egyptscoop #egypt#cairo#oldcairo#bath#architecture#explore#travel#culture#tourism#reading#read#marble#building#oldbuilding#instaphoto#traveller

She was given many titles the Queen consort of Egypt, Great Royal Wife, Lady of The Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt and Lady of Grace.
A small temple at Abu Simbel was dedicated to Nefertari and Hathor of Ibshek and it was the first time a temple was constructed for a queen in the history of Ancient Egypt. The ‘beautiful companion’ is the meaning of her majesty name “Nefertari” and “Meritmut” means ‘Beloved of the goddess Mut’.
The dedication text on one of the buttresses states: ‘’ A temple of great and Mighty monuments, for the Great Royal Wife Nefertari Meryetmut, for whose sake the (very) sun does shine, given life and beloved;’’
She was Ramses II's wife, and she lived during the new kingdom period as a member of the 19th Dynasty. They got married before his ascending to the throne and his main royal queen over his other wives. She appears twice as one of the royal women represented beside the colossal statues of Ramesses II that stand before Abu Simbel temple. It is said she came from a noble family as she had certain characteristics like reading, writing, and negotiation skills and had an important role in the king’s diplomatic policy. Her tomb no. 66 is the most beautiful tomb in the valley of queens with decorative motifs on walls and magical colors standing still...credits to @supersirvi #egyptscoop #egypt#nefertari#aswan#ancientegypt#history#temple#travel#explore#instatravel#tourism#tourist#travelblogger#travelbloggerscoop#queen#instadaily
#travel_scoop Al-Zahir Barquq Mosque is one of the most famous from the Fatimid Era. Take a visit to Old Cairo's most remarkable historic street, El-Moez, to take a glimpse of the mosque.
It was built in 1386 as one religious complex. It entails a mosque, a school, and a mausoleum.
According to history references, the Circassians were first imported to Egypt as slaves by Sultan Qalawun in the 13th century. As a Circassian, Barquq freed himself in 1363 to establish his own dominance with the help of Circassian Mamluks in 1382. Barquq ordered this complex to be constructed as a funerary for his family. All were subtly designed to remain as a witness for the grandeur of architecture surviving over hundreds of years.... credits to @projectwahba#photographerscoop #egyptscoop #egypt#cairo#oldcairo#mosque#instaphotography#travel#explore#tourism#tourist#instatravel#architecture#architecturephotography

In our hearts and prayers, they shall remain. #egyptscoop #egypt#alex#graffiti # #art#actor#actress#memories#instagraffiti

To the south of El Karnak temple in ancient Thebes (Luxor) is a rectangular Sacred Lake, dug by Tuthmosis III. It is the largest of its kind, lined with stones and provided with stairway descending into the water. It measures some 120 m (393 ft) by 77 m (252 ft). The groundwater, was used by the priests for ritual ablutions and other temple needs, and was also home to the sacred geese of Amun. Besides, it was a symbolically important in the ancient Egyptian's concept of creation, representing the primeval waters from which life arose.

I like the symmetry of this shot because in photography people usually use the rule of thirds where they put their subject on the right or the left of the frame but rules are made to be broken👌🏻 so central framing is one of the many other ways to compose your shot📷
Also have you watched my latest video?(link in the bio if you haven't)😁
Have a nice weekend😋🎃
Discover a hidden gem in downtown built in the late 19th century, Said Halim pacha palace, known as chamillion palace named after its main street. The architecture was impressive and included Baroque influences with classical arches and much details with materials imported from Italy. It has been abandoned and prince Said never lived in it due to his exile to Malta and last to his assassination. It has 2 floors with large foyer extending to a double ladder with 2 extended branches leading to its side wings, the 2nd floor has 6 spacious rooms and a basement with maid rooms, kitchen and storage rooms. #photographerscoop Credits to @nesrineelkhatib #egyptscoop #egypt#cairo#downtown#palace#architecture#photographer#explore#tour#art

One of the most beautiful places to visit in Egypt 🇪🇬 It is amazing feeling of floating on this wonderful colour of the water without doing anything as the water pushing you up by it self.

Me & my boys woke up at 4AM to catch the sunrise 🌅 at the middle of the desert in Siwa. It was one of the best experiences ever. The serenity. All by ourselves. I took my drone immediately, and start shooting this beauty ✨That moment when the sun is shining. I saw this beautiful landscape. First thing came to my mind. “Wow, its like I’m shooting a movie” so I took many pictures and videos 📹 It is one of the biggest sand dunes areas in the world. Its crazy that you stand there at the middle of these sand dunes and all what you can see is a 360 degree view of only sand dunes.
Would you try this kind of experience?
