Ancient Egyptian Mummies Paraded in Cairo Spectacle

A historic parade took place in Cairo, the capital city of Egypt to relocate 22 ancient rulers to the Museum of Egyptian Civilisation under tight security.

The 22 pharoahs, 18 kings and 4 queens, were transported to their new home in the chronological order of their reign in specially made vehicles. Amongst the monarchs, included the infamous King Ramses II.

The initiative is a bid to encourage tourism in Egypt. Although we may be living in Covid times, you can still experience Egypt the virtual way!
