Here are the most prominent Gods and Goddesses known in the Egyptian civilization:

Isis, Osiris, Horus, Amun, Ra, Hathor, Bastet, Thoth, Anubis, and Ptah

1- Anubis (god of the underworld)

Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the patron deity of lost and miserable souls. He was a muscular man with a jackal's head and black colored skin, which is a symbol that represents renewal and life. He protected the dead by ensuring their legitimate rights in burial ceremonies and stood by their side in the afterlife to help resurrect them from death.

2- Osiris (God of Death)

Osiris, the master of eternity, is also the god of the afterworld (the world of the dead), symbolized by a human being wearing a crown and is the head of the general trinity. The god of resurrection and reckoning is the head of the court of the dead among the Egyptians, one of the main sacred gods of the Egyptian religion.

After the world's creation, Osiris ascended the throne and married his sister Isis. He introduced agriculture, built temples, decided on laws, and organized them for his servants. Set killed his brother Osiris, tore his body into pieces, and scattered them away. But Isis managed to collect Osiris's body parts together. 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.

3- Ra (King of the gods)

The Egyptian god "Ra" was considered the main sun god, the king of the gods, and worshiped in all of Egypt. "Ra" merged with several gods; the most important was Amon. The sun god Ra represents sun worship. Ra represents three aspects. In the evening, he was renamed Khepri and assumed the form of a young boy. At noon, he is called Ra, with his usual appearance and the head of a falcon. At sunset, he took the title of Atom and appeared as a man.

4- Isis (fertility goddess)

Isis is the goddess of fertility and beauty, and the first ruler was god Ra's daughter and the mother of the god Horus. Isis was The Egyptian's sacred mother, wife, and sister of Osiris, who shared with him the rule of Egypt. When he killed him, Isis collected his body parts, which were buried in various parts of Egypt, and revived him thanks to her magical powers. The ancient Egyptians revered Isis and considered her the protective goddess throughout ancient Egypt.

5- Horus (God of the sky)

A falcon head and man's body is how ancient Egyptian describe Horus. 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.

6- Bastet (Goddess of love)

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.

7- Sobek (God of the Nile)

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. You can also book a private tour which includes stops at various historical sites along the river.

8- Set (God of natural phenomena)

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.

9- Sekhmet (the mighty goddess)

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. 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.

10- Ptah (Maker of Things)

Ptah god is the creator deity of the ancient Egyptians who lived before the existence of all other things and, by his will, created the world by thinking about it. He conceived the world with his thinking and brought it into existence through his words. Everything that Ptah imagined was made, which includes the ingredients of nature, the animals, and the plants. Ptah also plays a role in preserving the world's survival and the permanence of royal rule.

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.
