In just under two decades on the throne, Echnaton imposed new aspects of Egyptian religion, overhauled its royal artistic style, moved Egypt's capital to a previously unoccupied site, implemented a new form of architecture and attempted to obliterate the names and images of some of Egypt's traditional gods. Tell Amarna (/əˈmɑːrnə/Arabic: العمارنة‎, romanized: al-ʿamārnah) is an extensive Egyptian archaeological site that represents the remains of the capital city newly established (1346 BC) and built by the Pharaoh Echnaton of the late Eighteenth Dynasty, and abandoned shortly after his death (1332 BC).[1] The name for the city employed by the ancient Egyptians is written as Akhetaten (or Akhetaton—transliterations vary) in English. Akhetaten means "Horizon of the Aten".   Trip details:
