Beni Mazar - Egypt Highlights:
Beni Hasan Ancient Egyptian cemetery site
Beni Mazar is a city in Egypt. It is located in the Al Minya Governorate, on the west bank of the Nile. Beni Hasan (also written as Bani Hasan, or also Beni-Hassan) is an Ancient Egyptian cemetery site. It is located approximately 20km to the south of modern-day Minya in the region known as Middle Egypt, the area between Asyut and Memphis. While there are some Old Kingdom burials at the site, it was primarily used during the Middle Kingdom, spanning the 21st to 17th centuries BCE (Middle Bronze Age). To the south of the cemetery is a temple constructed by Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, dedicated to the local goddess Pakhet. It is known as the Cave of Artemis, because the Greeks identified Pakhet with Artemis, and the temple is subterranean.
