Akhetatun (Tel El Amarna currently) is an archeological site stretching on the east bank of the Nile, in El Menia Governorate. It is located about 58 km to the south of El Minia city and is regarded as one of the popular tourist attractions in Egypt. It contains the remains of the capital city built by the Pharaoh Akhenaten of the late Eighteenth Dynasty (c. 1353 BC). ‘Akhetatun’ once meant the ‘Horizon of the Aten’, who was the new sun god introduced by Amen-Hotep IV or Akhenaton. It was the cult for the worship of Aton, the sun god, and shortly after Akhenaten’s death, the site was abandoned.
