Egypt is considered as the cradle of the civilization. The Ancient Egyptians were responsible for the developments in writing, agriculture, and urbanisation. It was also the first country to have an organised religion and a central government. Some of the most famous monuments include the Giza Necropolis and the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings. These monuments reflect the legacy of the Ancient Kings of Egypt and are popular with the historic and scientific community. The British granted independence to Egypt in 1922. Many Egyptian literature and music heavily influenced the Arab and the Middle Eastern Culture. They were also the first civilisation to design elements in both art and architecture. The Egyptian Blue is a pigment that was used by the Egyptians for thousands of years. The Egyptian blue is the very first synthetic pigment. All the wall paintings of ancient Egypt followed a code that adhered to visual rules and meanings. The wall paintings were to appease the Pharaohs. The Egyptian civilisation is famous today for its pyramids, temples, and monumental tombs. The museums of Egypt have exhibits that range from the pre historic age to the modern age. The exhibits have been through many ages such as the Pharonic, the Roman, the Greek, and the Islamic. The Egyptian Museum houses over 120,000 items. Egypt is also famous for celebrating many religious carnivals and festivals. Most of them are associated with a Sufi Saint, but these festivals are mostly irrespective of religion. The best time to visit Egypt is from October to April.
