The city of Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 333 B.C and it has a unique history quite different from many other cities in Egypt. Alexander the great was heading to visit the Temple of the Oracle of  Amun at the Siwa Oasis he stopped overnight at the village of Racotis. Alexander decided that this location was to be the spot where a great city would be built. He charged one of his architects to build it. Alexander continued his way to Siwa to consult the oracle about his destiny and then left Egypt to fight against the Persians in Asia. It was not completed until the reigns of Ptolemy I, (Soter "the Saviour"), and his successor Ptolemy II (Philadelphus) that the building of the city was completed and it became the main capital of Egypt.
