Egyptian mythology is some of the richest and most varied in all of history. It’s a complex tapestry of gods and goddesses, mortals and monsters, heroes and villains, love, and war. The ancient Egyptians were a people who were very much in tune with the natural world around them. They saw the gods in everything, from the tiniest insect to the mightiest river and they told stories about them to try and make sense of it all. If you decide to take an Egypt day tours, you will discover many secrets and legends that will amaze you. In this blog post, we will explore some of the greatest Egyptian mythology stories and our Egypt tours that explain the mythology of god and goddess in the archaeological sites. From the story of Isis and Osiris to the tale of Set and Horus, these stories have captivated audiences for centuries.

Osiris and Isis

There are many temples during Luxor excursion that tell the legends of the gods,one of the most famous of these stories is the story of Isis and Osiris.The story of these two gods is one of tragedy, love, and hope.

Egypt's monarch was Osiris, and his consort was Isis. They were a happy couple with a great life ahead of them. Osiris's brother Set became jealous of him and wanted to take his place as king. Set tricked Osiris into getting into a box, and then sealed it shut, drowning him.

Isis was devastated by her husband's death. She searched for his body until she finally found it. Using her magic, she resurrected Osiris and they were able to be together again - albeit only for a short time. Set had other plans for Osiris and tricked him once more, this time cutting his body into pieces and scattering them across Egypt.

The story of Osiris and Isis is one of tragedy but also one of love and hope. These two gods represent the cycle of life and death that is so prevalent in Egyptian mythology. If you are interested in visiting a temple that witnesses this legendary love story, you can choose the city of Abydos from our Egypt travel package.

The Legend of Ra

Ancient Egyptians had a strong sense of spirituality. They believed in a pantheon of gods and goddesses who ruled over the different aspects of their lives. One of the most popular and well-known gods was Ra, the sun god.

I recommend taking a luxor east bank tour to visit karnak temple that tells the mythology of Ra, the sun god. The genius of the ancient Egyptians appears in the sun’s feast on the holy of holies of the god Amun Ra to illuminate his place of worship on the 21st of December. During this amazing Egypt luxury tours you will explore Ra statues and his famous tomb.

Ra was regarded as the architect of all life. He was often depicted as a man with the head of a hawk, or as a sun disk with eyes. His wife was the goddess Hathor, and his children were Shu and Tefnut.

Ra was said to travel across the sky each day in his solar boat, bringing light and life to the world. At night, he would sail through the underworld, fighting off evil demons and monsters.

The Battle of Set and Horus

There was a period when everything was in disarray. The land was divided among the gods, and humans were left to fend for themselves. One day, the god Set decided that he wanted more than his share of the world. He declared war on the other gods and fought a great battle against them. If you are interested in discovering more information about Horus, I suggest heading to Aswan day tours where the city of Edfu contains a temple to the god of Horus.

Horus vowed to take revenge on the gods who had defeated him. He plotted and schemed, and finally managed to trick Horus, the son of Osiris, into a duel. In the course of their battle, Set ripped out Horus's eyes. But Horus was not to be defeated so easily. He healed himself and fought back, finally defeating Set once and for all. I suggest doing many fun activities after completing your Egypt classic tour in the Temple of Horus, such as taking a Nile cruise tour around the island of Philae, enjoying the atmosphere, and taking many souvenir photos.

The Tale of the Sun God, Re

The sun god, Re, was one of the most important gods in Egyptian mythology. He was often depicted as a falcon-headed man or as a sun disk with wings. Re was the creator god who brought life to the world.

Re was believed to travel across the sky in his solar bark (boat). At night, he would journey through the underworld, where he would be reborn each morning. Re was associated with the Eye of Horus, which represented his power and protection. All this great ancient Mythology will be revealed during your Egypt travel package.

Abu Simbel Sun Festival Tour

Abu Simbel Sun Festival Tour

The Abu Simbel Sun Festival is a bi-annual festival that takes place at the splendid shrine of Ramses II in the south of Egypt. On 2 days of the year the main part of the shrine is lightened by the sun. For a brief span of time as the sun completely lines up with the generally masked interior, light is shed on the seated figurines of Ramses II (pharaoh), Ra (sun god) and Amun (king of the gods). Only the figurine of Ptah, stays in the shadows. This festival has been taking place for more than 3,200 years. Domestic tourists, international travelers and locals gather before sunrise to see the lighting as the sun rises & cuts through the shadows of the shrine’s inner compartment. To get to the heart of the temple tourists must first stroll through the remarkable entrance with its grandiose façade of colossal figurines. You will arrive into the grand hall enclosed by 2 treasury rooms & through to the Hypostyle Hall with adorned pillars & bas-reliefs embellishing the walls. A second pillared lobby guide to the sanctuary where the 4 sculptures are seated & the crowd stands two-people deep from the exterior walls to let the sun get through the interior.
