There is a business central in the middle of the modern side of Cario. But if you want to see sights then go to the older part. There you can find monuments, the pyramid of giza, and the city of the dead. It became a Muslim empire.

Valley of the Kings

The valley of the kings is located near the Nile river. It has the tombs that were built for the kings. Which some might call pharaohs. They are the kings that ruled from 1500s to 1000s. The Egyptians no longer preferred for pyramids as tombs. They thought the kings deserved a more hidden place. Because then there probably was a need for money. So they did not want any one to rob their rulers of their rulers riches. There are around 60 tombs. (the picture below is the valley of the kings.)

It is 500 miles south of Cario. When it was completed around the 1970s. They thought it was one of the Egyptians greatest projects ever made. Because of the dam there is no longer flooding in the river of the Nile, better fishing jobs, and a lot of electric power. The enormous job began in 1960s. The water that's held back is lake Nesser.
