Nile Sunset
"<" back one image Nile Sunset 
 The River Nile is the longest river in the world. It has two major tributaries, the White Nile which rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa and the Blue Nile beginning in Lake Tana in Ethiopia. In ancient Egyptian the Nile was called Iteru which means ‘river’. The Nile is crucial to life and spirituality in Egypt and the ancient calendar was based on the three life cycles of the river. Silt deposits from the Nile make the surrounding land fertile, because the river overflows its banks annually. The east was a place of birth and growth, and the west was the place of death, so all tombs were west of the Nile, because Egyptians believed that in order to enter the afterlife, they had to be buried on the side that symbolised death.
