Most dreamed of place(s) to visit in Egypt?
« on: January 25, 2020, 08:20:36 am »
I wanted to start a thread: if you could visit Egypt, which ancient sites would you most like to visit?

I know, I know, there are so many!! :D

For me: Medinet Madi (temple dedicated to Renenutet and Sobek); Philae (Aset is my Mom, after all :D); Kom Ombo (for the Heru-wer love); if it were open to the public, the Old Kingdom tomb of Wahtye.

Of course, the new Egyptian museum!

This is a fun question!  I would choose all the museums (including the open air museum at Karnak) and Seti I's Abydos temple. 

(Meanwhile, I am glad for what artifacts I can see in museums here, when I am able to travel.)

One of the first places I'd want to visit would be Abydos.

Yinepu made specific mention of the importance of Abydos for me in an early dream.

If I go to Egypt, it will be a once in a lifetime pilgrimage, and I cannot countenance restricting myself to a short list of places to visit. Therefore my dream would be to start at Abu Simbel and work my way leisurely downstream, taking two or three months to reach the sea, perhaps traveling occasionally on a felucca if there was enough time, and stopping absolutely everywhere en route, crisscrossing the delta at the end.

As always, Storm has the best ideas. <3 <3 <3

But I still want to hear about fave places in Egypt - if only to learn about places I didn't think of. :D

I reaaaaally want to go to Zagazig (aka Per-Bast aka Bubastis). There's not a whole lot remaining of the actual temple, but I just want to stand in the place and breathe the air. And there's a university museum nearby that contains artifacts found at the site.

(I've been to Egypt once, although not there--it's off the beaten track. I'm not sure I could say what my favorite sites were. ^_^ )

The tomb of Seti I would be high on my list. I’ve always been enamored with his beautiful tomb and to see it in person would be amazing. Whenever I get the chance to be near Egyptian antiquities I feel such awe and could look at them forever.

It just occurred to me that it’s very jackal like of me to want to visit a tomb.

I would absolutely love to go to all the places that my Fathers were historically worshipped. Their temples and all that (does Sha Dad have any temple still standing? I know they tried to erase Him in some places).

I don't know if any of these are still around, but Wikipedia does list some places:
