Sacred time at Hatshepsut Temple


Image

Mysterious Temple and mysterious Queen Hatshepsut.(reigned 1479-1457 BC)

Hatshepsut was the most important of the rare female Pharaoh and therefore created disapproval in this patriarcal society.

Many attempts after her death to eradicate her trace on hieroglyphs but this temple is here to stay and still in good condition. Despite Toutmosis III’s ambitions to destroy her history (successor), she is, 3500 years later, a famous Pharaoh, playing between been man and woman representations, what else! (She assumed, for exemple the traditional false beard and the symbols of Pharaohs)

Located in Deir el Bahari, a complex of Mortuary Temples, it is dedicated to the Sun God Amon-Ra . Its most striking feature is a long colonnated terrace filled with many tall sculptures representing the Pharaoh and Deities.

The architecture’s Temple contains pylons, courts, a hypostyle hall, a sun court, a chapel and a sanctuary.

The chapel of Hathor, goddess of joy, mucic and love

The surviving reliefs on the wall document the birth of the first divine female Pharaoh and an expedition to a mysterious country near the Red Sea (the Land of Punt) from where they brought back copper, asphalt, naptha, carved amulets, myrrh and incense.
Hatshepsut’s temple is considered an incomparable monument of Ancient Egypt.

Isn’t it Beautiful?

You walk up the Big Eternal Hatshepsut’s Monument and from this view, you could see others marvels of Ancient Egypt but…sshutt.. I’ll let you discover by yourself when you will come 😉

Hatshepsut was a great Pharaoh of the XVIII  Dynasty, she built in Karnak the Red Chapel and famous Obelisqs. She wished gold obelisk for Amon Ra…With all her love, she built it in granit, with all her love too.

Hatshepsut, with all my love, you are a great Pharaoh.

Just a note : Luxor is amazing to gather all this Ancient History, following the biggest Pharaohs from the begining of them reign until them death, by Temples and tombs.

Luxury choice…which media,which information?


It’s every day when we listen to the information: The world goes wrong, it is clearly stated through the TV presenter, from the newspaper and information mass.
Through this, what suggests that transfer of information?
Fear? Anger? The misplaced interest for the last bad news to broadcast and conversation prioritizes media.
Television often looked early, middle or end of day, and even 3 times for some people, reminds me of some of the information’s dictatorship to condition people with bad news several times a day, and seems to leave with a positive touch of hope as a temporary thinning of the weather gives us hope for better days.

If I defer to the definition of information: “Information is a concept with several meanings. It is closely linked to notions of constraint, communication, control, data, form, instruction, knowledge, meaning, perception and representation. Etymologically, the information is what gives form to the spirit. It comes from the Latin verb informare, which means “shaping” or “to form an idea of”. ” (wikipedia).

A meditation on the transmission thereof, nothing indicates only the negative side of the news, where is the objectivity of our media?

Egypt is still going through a great period of crisis is a hot topic and there is no great achievements without much risk taking.

I met in the plane a girl living in Cairo and I asked how was life in the capital? She smiled and replied: “Life is normal, everything happens in Tahrir Square,” here is some information directly!

The recursive propagation of images broadcast through the media once again empty of Egypt’s tourists.
Tourism activity has not ceased in the land of Pharaohs. The magnificent temples of Luxor are always visited, the Red Sea still attracts lovers of the underwater beauty and a calm atmosphere and eternal reign as always on the banks of the Nile.
Nothing broadcasts about this and it seems to be difficult thinking Egypt for holidays from this information mass. And so! Egypt is not confined to the cities of Cairo, Alexandria and Suez.
Egyptians are waiting for you!
Lovers of Egypt are filled to come in those days usually crowded buses stinking sunscreen pukes in temples and tombs, here it is calm and serene to spend his own time in one of the finest place in the world! There are places to avoid, however, but you can count on the news to be informed!

Beautiful things aren’t anymore interesting to broadcast it? Objective informations would become a luxury?

The land of the Pharaohs in others crossed!

Thoth, God of Knowledge and Writing

Enjoy Luxor at your own pace


Spending a couple of days in West Bank to feel the magic of Pharaohs time, it’s the way to live here, you have to feel this one time in your life! Then, Egypt does the rest, you will know!

Everything is very special.
First, You are here! and all around you is just amazing.
Some people come to visit as they buy them bread everyday and ask: how much?…and go back, forgotten the essential! Incredible but real! And they stay never long in most of sites, it’s the positive!
Then…come back to our beautiful and calm day in West Bank, the true way to be here.
So, you are here, the weather is very lovely, the sweet color of the nature and the main of your day make you feel in other world.
Two majestic statues welcome you in this beautiful world, the Colossi of Memnon, whose make feeling quiet, strong, high and so present all over this time (3400 years old!). When you pass over them you enter the magic land of the eternal Luxor (ancient Thebes) where the Kings and Queens Valleys are, Temples and sites where the Pharaohs lived and died.

Only one road to «jump» from temple to temple, and you go back in the line of lifetime. Along this road, the Temples of Sethi I, Ramses II, RamsesIII, Hatshepsut for the most famous and beautiful conservation and restoration, but also Amenophis III, Merenptah, still in restoration. The Sacred mountain keep the marvels of the tombs of kings, queens and nobles, with beautiful color make you thinking it was done yesterday.

To enjoy your journey, there is some nice places to stay between you’r visiting temples if you are bit hungry, or just to appreciate fresh juice (orange, mango, lemon, banana…) and keep your good vibes with beautiful view, never far away from king’s Valley and green landscape, palm trees and sunny colors. I’m thinking specially one place call «Moon Valley» and so, other are nice too without feeling you are in a flashy fashion place,that’s why West Bank is so special cause you feel the nature like before.

Visiting Luxor, and specially West Bank, at your own pace, need a couple of days to see, feel and enjoy this very special time in your life.
Spending sunset time on the Nile, discovering the two beautiful temples in est side, Karnak and Luxor Temple and when the night comes, the sacred mountain illuminated is just wonderful.

 

Luxor, you will always amaze me!
