The Triad of Thebes
During the Middle Kingdom, (2133-1786 B.C), Thebes was regarded as the center of the political and religious affairs in Egypt and the center of the civilized world. The most distinguishing feature of that city that was locating about 700 meters away from Memphis is its luxuriously and gracefully designed buildings. There were many gods and goddesses worshiped in that area including Wast in Waset, and Amun who was one of the minor gods of the north in Thebes in the early dynasties.
