EGYPT

Ancient Egypt's History

Middle Kingdom

   

 

Mentuhotep II, the first ruler of the united Middle Kingdom in the 11th Dynasty, created a new style in mortuary monuments, probably inspired by the pyramid complexes of the Old Kingdom. On the west bank at Thebes he constructed a valley temple connected by a long causeway to a platformed temple nestled in the rocky hillside. The walls were decorated with reliefs of the king in the company of the gods.
