Egyptian Landmarks Beyond The Pyramids

When we think of ancient Egypt, often we think of the pyramids. But what about Egyptian landmarks that aren't pyramids? There are several other architectural marvels that provide a view into the engineering genius of this former civilization. The Great Pyramid of Giza is far from alone when it comes to the amazing structural anomalies of this region constructed as far back as 5,000 years ago. Nestled on the outskirts of the Nile River, the Temple of Luxor was built near 1400 B.C. and stands as a grandiose structure erected as an homage to summer gods. Showcasing several 70-foot-long gateways, the Temple of Luxor is heavily guarded by statues and obelisks built into the foundation. Just a stone's throw away lies the ancient city of Karnak, known to be home to the largest collection of Egyptian religious statues. A galley of a hundred gigantic pillars outline the perimeter of a 50,000-square-foot room at the city's heart—Hypostyle Hall. The "Pearl of Egypt" can be found at Philae Island, home to the famous Temple of Isis and known for its lush and beautiful vegetation as well as its folklore.

Although Egyptian civilization is one of the earliest, the preservation of these astounding architectural treasures help explain world history and modern society. Take a trip back in time to discover some of archeology's greatest finds with this playlist, including reconstructions, archival footage and travel guides to discovering ancient Egypt.
