The oldest capital not only in Egyptian¬ history but in man history as it was established by King Mina to be the capital¬ of Egypt because it's location between ¬upper and Lower Egypt. In other words Memphis is located between the Nile Valley ¬and Delta .
Memphis was the Capital of Egypt in the old kingdom and center of administration of the country. In the new Kingdom, king Ramses II wanted to show¬ his respect and love to that great city¬ and that's why he built a great temple ¬there and dedicated for the supreme God ¬of Memphis, God Betah, the God of darkness for the ancient Egyptian.
Now, Memphis is a part of Cairo and is ¬like a small village but still worthy of visiting.
Memphis Museum including the great statue of king Ramses II and the second biggest Sphinx in Egypt made out of¬ Alabaster as well as so many beautiful ¬statues and coffins .
