We visited a number of side by side cemeteries of ancient Egyptian rulers of this region. Each cemetery is unique with its design and drawings narrating in hieroglyphics the life story of its owner. They are well preserved and situated on a high spot (...More

If you live ancient history, you’ll love this place. Tombs of Nobles cut waaaay up high into the rock. Not a good place for those with physical ailments. Many many steps involved. We were shown into 4 tombs. Great paintings on walls but not much...More

While the village itself is of no value, the tombs are really great. Apart from their historical value, they exhibit marvelous wall paintings and reliefs. However, you need to climb more than 140 steps, while sun is not really tender. No access for handicapped, unfortunately!!

If your fortunate to travel through middle Egypt, Beni Hassan at Al Minya is a must stop. There is a mildly strenuous walk to the top with a tremendous view of the Nile Valley. Site is 4,000 years old with tombs of the Nobles having...More
