Tutankhamun was originally named Tutankhaten. This name, which literally means “living image of the Aten”, reflected the fact that Tutankhaten’s parents worshipped a sun god known as “the Aten”. After a few years on the throne the young king changed his religion, abandoned the Aten, and started to worship the god Amun [who was revered as king of the gods]. This caused him to change his name to Tutankhamun, or “living image of Amun”. Much of what is known about Tutankhamun today derives from the discovery of his tomb in 1922. On November 26, 1922,Carter and fellow archaeologist entered the interior chambers of the tomb. To their amazement, they found much of its contents and structure miraculously intact. Inside one of the chambers, murals were painted on the walls that told the story of Tutankhamun's funeral and his journey to the afterworld. Also in the room were various artifacts for his journey — oils, perfumes, toys from his childhood, precious jewelry and statues of gold and ebony. Over the next 17 years, Carter and his associates carefully excavated the four-room tomb, uncovering an incredible collection of thousands of priceless objects. King Tut’s MummyThe most fascinating item found in King Tut’s tomb was the stone sarcophagus containing three coffins, one inside the other, with a final coffin made of gold. When the lid of the third coffin was raised, King Tut's royal mummy was revealed, preserved for more than 3,000 years. As archaeologists examined the mummy, they found other artifacts, including bracelets, rings and collars. This statue is handmade, engraved and painted by skilled local Egytian Craftsmen all the way from Luxor, the city of history. Ahmed, the craftsman's workshop is located in the area of Hatshepsut temple. In which he is constantly inspired by the rich Pharaoh culture and history, and works his way into making statues of Egyptian gods and kings. The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut is one of the most beautiful of all of the temples of Ancient Egypt. It is located at Deir el-Bahri , at the head of the valley beneath the peak of the mountain (and natural pyramid) "Dehent". Hatshepsut's temple was named "Djeser-djeseru" ("holy of holies"). It sits directly against the rock which forms a natural amphitheatre around it so that the temple itself seems to grow from the living rock. The design of the temple echoes that of the Mortuary Temple of Montuhotep which is its neighbor. There is also a mortuary temple dedicated to Thuthmosis III and a number of Ptolemaic burials in the vicinity. Her temple is one of the most striking monuments in Ancient Egypt even in its semi-ruined state. It was designed by Senenmut (who according to some ancient and modern commentators was her lover) as a "garden for her father" (Amun) and exotic trees and shrubs from Punt (possibly Somalia) were planted the lower courtyard.
