pyramid, I went to the hotel room and got out. I have less time in hand and I have to explore the whole of Egypt. But before that, you have to eat something. Jasim Bhai said let’s cheat to eat Kushari. Kushari is a type of food that is prepared by mixing together rice, noodles, and Kalai, Dublin. On the way to the Egyptian pyramid. A type of tomato sauce is given with which to eat. The food is very tasty. As a dessert have them rose bee laban. In Bangladesh, we call it pies. Don’t wait another minute after the meal and ‘Mission to Pyramid’.
The pyramids in Cairo are located at the Giza Ahram.
The word Ahram means pyramid. On the way in we took a horse carriage. Because the whole place is very big. Walking is not possible. There are 9 pyramids in all. Pharaoh Khufu, his son Kafra, Kafra’s son Menkuor and their queens. Next to each pharaoh’s pyramid is the pyramid of their queen. The pyramids of the queens are small in size. The Khufu Pyramid is the largest among them. His coffin was placed about 300 feet above the ground. Kafr’s coffin was placed below the ground. That is, we have to go up to see Khufu’s coffin and go down to see Kafra. That’s what the guide told us. It goes without saying that each pyramid is designed in such a way that you have to bow your head to enter and exit. The guide told us that the pharaohs wanted everyone to bow down to them when they were alive so that everyone would bow down to them after death. So the pyramid is made in such a way that you have to enter with your head down
Must be with head down. It is good to say here that you have to buy tickets separately for each place. That is, at the main gate, you have to buy a ticket at the entrance gate of the pyramid.
After leaving the pyramid we wandered around the whole place for a while. The evening has come and now we have to go to the Nile. Who does not know the story of the Nile? The Egyptian civilization developed around the Nile River. Human settlements have developed wherever the Nile River has flowed. The Egyptians called the Nile River ‘Nile’. Everything changes with time. The Nile is no longer the same. Still, the Nile flowing past the village area is relatively free of pollution. An afternoon boat trip on the Nile is one of the tourist attractions.
The hotel I stayed in is next to Hussain Mosque. Hussain Mosque is famous for the fact that Egyptians claim that Hazrat Hussain (RA) is buried here. Out of curiosity, I went there after dinner. I returned home at night. The shops built around the Hussaini Mosque are crowded. The shops will be open all night. Cairo never sleeps.
Today we are going to Alexandria.
First I will go to the Quaid by Qella then I will go to the Library of Alexandria. From bus, train, and micro, we decided to go by train. The train is at 9 in the morning, so I got up early in the morning and left after breaking fast. Here’s a funny thing about breakfast. I asked the boy who was serving food in the restaurant to give me a tissue. In Arabic tissue is called clinic or minder. The boy handed me a box of tissues. Let’s say he doesn’t speak English. While paying the bill, he grabbed a tissue bill of 9 Egyptian pounds. I am surprised. Later I realized he thought I would buy a box of tissues. Anyway, I returned home with a box of tissues.
I have always loved train journeys. It takes about two and a half hours to go from Cairo to Alexandria. In between, I had a light meal on the train. But this time I didn’t make the mistake of asking for a tissue. I got off the train and took a taxi. This city is beautiful by the Mediterranean Sea. Along with the bone-chilling cold wind.
Quaid Bai Kella:
Katie (or Citadel of Kaitbe, Alexander) is a 15th-century defensive fortress on the Mediterranean coast of Alexandria, Egypt. It was founded in 1477 AD (882 AH) by Sultan al-Ashraf Saif al-Didin Qayt Bey. The fort is situated eastward on the northern coast of Ferrus Island from the mouth of East Bengal.
The archeological site is located on the eastern side of Ferus Island at the entrance to East Bengal. It was built on the exact site of Alexander’s famous lighthouse, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The lighthouse continued to operate until the time of the Arab conquest when several disasters occurred and the shape of the lighthouse changed slightly, but it still operates. Rebuilding began during the reign of Ahmed Ibn Tulun (c. 880 AD). A one-time earthquake damaged the octagonal section. The bottom survived, but it could only serve as a watchtower, and a small mosque was built above. There was a very devastating earthquake in the 14th century and the entire building was completely destroyed.
One of the Seventh Wonders of the World is the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Quaid Bai built a fort here when it collapsed after several tsunamis. The clear sea can be seen from any side of this fort. There are small windows inside the fort that make the sea seem very close. There is a little garden in front of the fort. This is a place to relax.
The Library of Alexandra Great in Alexandria, Egypt was one of the largest and most important libraries of the ancient world. The library was part of a large research institute called the Maucyon, which was dedicated to Moses, the nine goddesses of the arts. The idea of a public library in Alexandria may have been suggested by Demetrius Phalerum, an exiled Athenian nobleman living in Alexandria of Ptolemy I Soter, who established plans for the library but the library was probably not built until the reign of Ptolemy I Soter. His son Ptolemy Philadelphus. The library quickly acquired a large number of papyrus scrolls, largely due to the aggressive and well-regulated policies of the Ptolemaic kings for collecting texts. It is unknown precisely how many scrolls were placed in the scrolls at any given time, but estimates range from 40,000 to 40000.
Alexander Library is one of the oldest libraries in the world. This huge library has books in different languages. There are many old handwritten books kept in one room. Apart from this, there are many old printing machines and some literature.
I came to the Egypt pyramid for this day.
Today we will visit the Cairo Museum which houses the mummies of the pharaohs and the gold mask of the boy king Tutankhamun. I went to the museum in the morning. I got the ticket after crossing the long line. There is a ticket to enter the museum, another ticket to enter the mummy house and separate tickets to take photos and videos. To be honest, people like me who have a huge interest in Egyptian civilization will spend the whole day here.
Have you seen the movie ‘Mummy’? You will find exactly those things here. Sculptures placed in the pyramids, hieroglyphics carved on the stone, silver jewelry used at that time, and the special attraction is the golden mask of Tutankhamun. It is good to mention here that taking pictures in the pyramid mummy room and the Tutankhamun mask room is strictly prohibited. The coffins on different floors in the museum are amazing. Some are plain and some are in Rangchong. Among them, a coffin is quite colorful. It belonged to a priest. The hieroglyphics on the black coffin are alive.
Just before the mummy entered the room, I met Anubis. Remember Anubis? The Egyptians say. Anubis. whose face is like a fox. He was named Dr. for his many contributions to mummification. called Anubis. According to people, he was very clever to hide, so he wears this mask.
A total of 11 mummies were in the mummy room. Mummies of different pharaohs and their queens at different times. Some mummies wearing masks, some mummies garlanded with strange dried leaves. How strange! Thousands of years ago they were alive, very powerful and today the dead body lies, in a hollow. The pharaoh Ramesses 2 mummy is kept here. We Muslims more or less know his story.
We all more or less know the story of the boy king Tutankhamun. An Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty (reigned 1332–1323 AD), a period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom or sometimes New Empire period. After the discovery of his intact tomb, allegedly referred to as King Tut. His real name, Tutankhaten, means ‘seated living image’, and Tutankhamun means ‘living image of Amun’. In hieroglyphs, the name Tutankhamun was usually written as Amen-Tut-Akh, due to a reverential custom of placing a divine name at the beginning of the word to show proper respect.
Tuten Khamun married his half-sister Ankesenamun. who was the daughter of the mighty Queen Nefertiti and King Akhenaten? As such, Nefertiti is in a way Tut’s stepmother and mother-in-law. Tutankhamun’s mummy is not here, it is in a city called Lukjor. where he was buried.
My Egypt mission ends here. I stepped on the way home, taking with me some beautiful memories and some fun experiences. Egyptians have a lot of tea. But like us, they don’t drink tea mixed with milk, they eat colored tea or black tea. Roasted sunflower seeds are called lib. Very dear to them. Bread is their main food. This Egyptian bread can be found everywhere on their route
If someone wants to go to Egypt, be careful if they think you are a tourist, they will cheat you in many ways, the Egyptians have a bad reputation for this nature.
Egypt prefers to be portrayed as the land of the Pharaohs. A new culture has been created here by mixing ancient Egyptian pyramids and Muslim cultures. Mount Tur, located in the Sinai region of Egypt, is the most prominent in the history of Prophet Moses (PBUH), but the story is rarely heard here.
I was quite surprised when I went to the toilet on the first day. Muslim country but there is no water system. Then I discovered that just like the flush, the water is supplied from inside the commode with a line, there is no separate push shower. I have not seen this anywhere before pyramid.
Egypt, the land of the pharaohs, whose air is mixed with ancient civilizations and many unknown mysteries. Who knows when to solve the mystery of the unknown?
