Photo of Egyptian Hieroglyphics

Everywhere we went in Egypt, we saw hieroglyphics. I never got tired of looking at them. The richest area for seeing hieroglyphic carvings was in the necropolis of ancient Thebes, most notably the Luxor and Karnak Temple complexes, Ramesseum and at Medinet Habu. We also saw some hieroglyphic carvings in Saqqara near Cairo, and of course on many of the artifacts at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In some places we even saw tourist graffiti from the 1800’s carved alongside the three-millenia-old hieroglyphics.
