Egypt, the former home of the Pharaohs, is a fascinating tourist destination with glittering buildings and tombs that awe travelers. Though not all of it consists of historical monuments and tourist destinations. All types of tourists may find something to do in Egypt due to the enormous expanses of desert that are perfect for 4WD excursions, the world-class coral reefs and wrecks in the Red Sea, and cruises on the renowned Nile River. Beachgoers seeking some sun should head to the Sinai or the Red Sea Coast, while archaeological buffs will appreciate Luxor. For city slickers, Cairo is the unrivaled megalopolis, while Siwa oasis and the southern town of Aswan provide a taste of the leisurely pace of the countryside.See what is there to explore.

Abydos Temple

One of the most intriguing aesthetic artifacts from ancient Egypt is the Temple of Osiris in Abydos. The Seti I-built temple is located within a sizable necropolis where active archeological investigations are taking place. Although there are many more temple ruins to explore in this area, the Temple of Osiris is the main draw for most tourists. Some of the best relief work in Egypt may be seen in its hypostyle halls, which are decorated with papyrus-headed columns and have figures depicting the pharaoh and the gods of ancient Egypt. The temple is far less visited than the temple sites at Luxor and the Nile-side temples to the south because it is located north of Luxor and off the usual cruise ship route. As a result, you frequently have the opportunity to explore the temple's hallways alone or with just a few other people.
