The Pyramids, Egypt

Pyramids at Giza, Egypt

pyramids

The people of ancient Egypt believed that death on Earth was the start of a journey to the next world.ย 

The embalmed body of the king was entombed inย a chamber either underneath or within the pyramid to protect it and allow his transformation and ascension to the afterlife, and a place among the gods.

During the Old Kingdom era, the kings of Egypt began to emphasize their divine associations and their people believed them to be manifestations of the god Horus.ย 

After the time of Khufu, kings were also proclaimed to be sons of the great sun god Re.ย 

After his death, the king became associated with Osiris, the father of Horus and god of the underworld.ย 

His sacred powers were passed on to the new ruler - usually his son.
