First, it is the most basic funeral parlor temple where the king is not just the recipient of offerings but rather passes ceremonies for the gods (in this case Amun-Ra).  Second, the temple identifies the king with Osiris, a local Theban god which developed in significance from the 11th dynasty forwards. Certainly, the decoration and royal statuary of the temple highlights the Osirian aspects of the dead ruler, a thought seeming in the memorial statuary of many later
They made sure that their king would have everything he needed for his journey to the afterlife. The Egyptians even mummified the pharaohs in order to preserve their body. They believed that their souls would leave the body at the time of death. The bodies needed to be preserved so the soul would be able to recognize the body it was returning to. After mummification, the kings were placed in tombs in the pyramids, along with gold, food, and other offerings.

Situated beside the Great Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Khafre, it is popularly known as ‘Menkaure is Divine’.

It is thought to have been built to serve as the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Menkaure, son of Khafre.

Qin Shi Huang’s BELIEFS IMMORTALITY • Many of Qin Shi Huang’s actions were determined by his desire to be immortal. His fear of death made him obsessed with finding the elixir of life so he could live forever. Doctors and alchemists created a number of potions, many containing mercury, which most likely caused the Emperor’s death rather than preventing it. THE AFTER WORLD • In case the elixirs did not work, Qin Shi Huang ordered the construction of an enormous tomb for himself. The tomb consisted of flowing rivers of mercury, replicas of the Emperor’s earthly palaces and booby traps in case of looters .
In this presentation I will discuss each of these objects which are linked through the macabre theme of death. The Hagia Triada sarcophagus is a late Bronze Age limestone sarcophagus. Its original date was 1400 BC and was rediscovered in Hagia Triada on Crete in 1903. It gives us the most comprehensive iconography of a pre-Homeric thysiastikis ceremony and one of the best pieces of information on noble burial customs when Crete was under Mycenaean rule. The sarcophagus is on display in the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, one of the most important archaeological museums, in Greece.

First, you need to have a death body, and then remove brain, liver, intestines, lungs, and stomach; however, the heart will not remove out from the body.
An example of Egyptians valuing death/ and afterlife is that they made pyramids for their Pharaohs when they die and mummified them for the after life. In the article, “Tombs” it said, “These monumental pyramids built for the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure housed the royal mummies and their worldly effects thought to protect and be used by the kings in their afterlife,” (Staff ). The Egyptians had many beliefs about afterlife. They believed that when you die a part your soul continues on, so they built pyramids to protect the Pharaoh and other royals. They also used mummification to harness their body.
The mystery of this monument and the pyramids borders on the time of their construction, the people who built them and why (Hagen& Rainer, 2007). Some historians ascribe the Great Sphinxof Giza to Khafre. Its discoverywas a great milestone in the process of unraveling the mysteries of Ancient Egypt. The statue was found in the Valley Temple which is adjacent to Sphinx. This was a revelation that Khafre was the builder of the Valley Temple as well as the Sphinx.
This magical performance is seen mostly as magic as illusion but also magic as superstitious to some. Djedi will be viewed as a conjurer in magic due to the different kinds of conjurers that were discovered over the centuries.
