Ancient Egyptian city unearthed near Luxor

A lost city has now been discovered near Luxor in Egypt. The history of the city dates back to 3,500 years ago, and according to experts, the city was supposed to be part of a palace built for the jubilee of Amenhotep III, the Pharaoh of Maggot, who ruled somewhere between 1386 and 1353 BC.

The city was discovered again in September last year near the Colossi of Memnon. Aside from the palace, you also have administrative buildings and a temple dedicated to the god Amun and also the desert altar of Kom al-Sammak. It was discovered that there was also a festive lake known here as Briket Habu, along with a settlement of homes and workshops.

This lost city is built mostly with uncut clay bricks and is compared to ancient Egyptian Pompeii. Village Street can still be seen and walked as it did 35,000 years ago. According to Peter Lacovara, director of the Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Antiquities Fund, the city has been well preserved and thus a delight for explorers.

In fact, some homes have been preserved up to three meters high, with their contents remaining intact. So you can see the kitchen and even crockery. The vessels contain inscriptions calling the settlement the emergence of Aten. Other inscriptions include the dazzling domain name of Aton, which is the temple built by Amenhotep's son, Akhenaten.

With a lot of discoveries, this indicates that the archeology of this region was really rich, but all of it needs to be largely protected and preserved.
