The tombs of Beni Hassan are located in the desert near El Minya, Egypt. The site contains a collection of rock-cut tombs from the Middle Kingdom period which dates back to between 2055 and 1650 BCE and is decorated with scenes from everyday life in ancient Egypt.
The tombs were built for priests, officials, and nobles who lived during this period. They were buried along with their belongings and other items that they would need in the afterlife. The walls of the tombs have detailed paintings and hieroglyphics that tell stories about life during this time period. The most famous painting depicts a group of men who are sailing on a boat with a crocodile under it. These tombs can be visited through one of many Egypt day Tours with us specialmente during Cairo day tours!
The site is considered to be one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt today because it contains some very intricate carvings and hieroglyphs that tell us more about what life would have been like during this time period. The tombs are made up of a series of rock-cut chambers, decorated with wall paintings that depict daily life as well as scenes from Egyptian mythology and religion.
There are many different types of tomb structures found at this site with some being built for queens, others for high-ranking officials, and even kings who ruled over Egypt's 18th Dynasty (1580-1350 BC). Each structure is different from the next because each one has its own unique design but they all have one thing in common: they're all underground! This means that when you visit this site you'll need to wear comfortable shoes because there's lots of walking involved! for example, the architecture of Amenemhet’s tomb differs from the earlier style by having a courtyard and a portico with two columns before the entrance to the tomb chapel.
This Beni Hassan Tombs offers visitors an opportunity to see how people lived during ancient times as well as what their beliefs were like through their artwork - so if you're looking for an adventure through your Egypt Tours then check out these tombs today!
