The wonderful city found in Egypt is discussed in three thousand years old. Even after passing after so many years, looking at the remains of this ‘biggest’ ancient city of Egypt, it seems as if it was built just yesterday. The city is also known as the ‘Pompeii of Ancient Egypt’. The discovery of this nearly 3400-year-old city under the sands of the city of Luxor was announced last week by Egyptian archaeologist Dr. Zahi Havas. Now the first video of this ‘city of gold has come out in front of the world.
Many experts say that this city of Egypt is the biggest discovery after the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun in the year 1922. The city has been discovered after nearly 7 months of excavation. The common man will not be allowed to visit the city for the next several years. Meanwhile, the operators of the YouTube channel Anyextee have released a video of the entire city.
The largest ancient city discovered in Egypt
Famous Egyptologist Jahi Havas has announced that the ‘lost golden city’ has been discovered close to Lagger. The Valley of the Kings is located here. The team issued a statement that under the aegis of Dr. Zahi, a city was found in the Egyptian mission which was lost under the sand. The statement said, ‘The city is 3000 thousand years old, continued during the reign of Amenhotep III and also during Tutankhamen.’
The city is said to be the largest ancient city discovered in Egypt. Egyptian art and archaeologist Betsy Bryan of Johns Hopkins University said that this is the second-largest archaeological discovery after the discovery of Tutankhamen’s mausoleum. The search has found rings such as jewelry, colored utensils, amulets, and sealed brick bricks of Amantop III. Earlier this city was searched many times but no one could find it. It has been hoped that many treasures may be found in further exploration.
Witness to the richness of the Egyptians
The team began the search in September last year. 500 km from Cairo was discovered between the temples of Ramses III and Amantop III near Lagjar. Within a few weeks, he started finding figures made of clay bricks at all places. The excavation revealed a huge city that was preserved in fairly good condition. Nearly completed walls and rooms filled with everyday items were found. The team’s statement said that this area has been found after thousands of years as if it were from yesterday itself.
Seven months later several areas were discovered. It also found a bakery and utensil store along with Avan. Even administrative and residential districts were found. Amantop III had inherited an empire that stretched from the Euphrates to Sudan. He died in 1354 BC. He ruled for four decades. This period is known for its richness and magnificent buildings. These include huge statues of him and his queen mounted near Najjar. Bryan explained that this discovery would allow knowing the richest era of ancient Egypt.
