Tell Al-Amarna

It is the place chosen by Akhenaton to build the capital of his kingdom called Akhetaten (Horizon of Aten) for the worship of Aten which is represented by the sun disk emitting rays ending with human hands bestowing life on the universe. This area still has monuments of the temple and places where Akhenaton and his wife Nefertiti lived, and also the royal tombs of which the most important are Huya and Mery Ra tombs and the tomb of Ay.
