Thus Osiris began his tour to become the master of the dead. Before Osiris' death, Isis conceived their son, Horus, Who grew up, defeated his uncle Set, and avenged his father's death.
The Egyptian god "Ra" was viewed as the principal sun god, the lord of the divine beings, and adored in all of Egypt. "Ra" converged with a few divine beings; the most significant was Amon.

A falcon head and man's body is how ancient Egyptians describe Horus that you will discover during your Egypt cultural tours. He is a powerful god of the sky, the protector of the royal dynasty in Egypt, the avenger of grievances, and the unifier of the two lands. Based on the stories of his battles with Set, he became a war god. The Egyptian rulers invoked him before the clash and praised and glorified him afterward. Horus was the supreme example of all kings, as he avenged his father from his murderer, Set.
She is depicted as a fertility deity in the form of a cat or a woman with a cat's or lioness' head. She was the protector of the pregnant woman and represented fertility, love, and tenderness.
She also represented joy, dance, music, and feasts, as well as other traits besides meekness, such as anger and predatoriness, and, as history progressed, she became associated with the predatory deity Sekhmet, who is the lioness and represents Bastet's predatory side when she is angry.
The Egyptian god Sobek, the Nile master and the bringer of fertility, the ancient Egyptian, believed that he was the Nile god and the Nile's water was from his race. Sobek's description was a man with a crocodile head. Because Egyptians feared and respected crocodile strength, Sobek quickly became the patron of the army and protector of the pharaohs. He was also a deity who could restore damaged souls in battle or while dying to their previous physical health, including their sight and senses.
One popular option for evening entertainment is to take a felucca ride down the Nile. This traditional Egyptian boat is perfect for taking in the sunset and enjoying the cool evening breeze.

Set the symbol of evil who killed his brother, cut his body into forty pieces, and buried each part of it in one of the provinces. Still, Isis, his wife, collected the parts of Osiris. She wrapped them in rolls, and she was able to bring him back to life, but for a short time. Hence the idea of mummification and mummy. Horus grew up and decided to avenge his father, and from here, a long struggle between good and evil began.
Sekhmet means "who is strong" and represents the aggressive and offensive side of life. Her body is female, and her head is that of a female lion, you will discover all this beauty and greatness of this god during Egypt budget tours. She was the god Ptah's wife, companion, and consort. In hieroglyphics, "Ptah" is the daughter of the legendary solar deity Ra.
Ra, the sun god in Egyptian mythology, was furious because humans mocked him. As a result, he sent Sekhmet to exact vengeance on them. Sekhmet, on the other hand, enjoyed this task so much that she slaughtered so many people that she wiped out almost all humans. Ra Sekhmet was duped into coming here by offering her large quantities of red beer that looked like blood, so she drank from it, got drunk, and calmed down until she passed out. All this historical information will be more relevant and clear during your Egypt Easter tours.

Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it's really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.
