Prior to the establishing of Cairo, the antiquated city of Memphis ruled. Neighboring Saqqara along the Nile River, the remains of Memphis which was established in 2925 B.C. by semi legendary ruler Menes was the principal supreme city on earth. In the first place established in A.D. 969, Cairo is viewed as an extremely youthful capital by Egyptian principles. All that remaining parts of its previous eminence are the scattered vestiges of stone sanctuaries, waiting statues and mud-block necropolises.
Late guests said that investigating the antiquated capital was an unquestionable requirement. Be that as it may, the site is little since the vast majority of the vestiges were scoured before unearthings started, so it's best to bunch a Memphis visit with a voyage through Saqqara. A portion of the features here incorporate a substantial limestone statue of Ramses II and a mammoth alabaster sphinx, both of which once protected the passage to the Temple of Ptah, Memphis' supporter divinity.
