Memphis, founded around 3,100 BC, is the legendary city of Menes, the King who united Upper and Lower Egypt. Early on, Memphis was more likely a fortress from which Menes controlled the land and water routes between Upper Egypt and the Delta. Having probably originated in Upper Egypt, from Memphis he could control the conquered people of Lower Egypt. However, by the Third Dynasty, the building at Saqqara suggests that Memphis had become a sizable city. Today, nothing much remind from ancient Memphis, except some monuments from the new kingdom period and later period. In Memphis, the open- air museum exhibits a limestone colossus of king Ramsis II (1305-1237 BC ) and I giant alabaster sphinx weighting more than 80 tons of weight, that once stood out side the massive temple of god Petah.
