Egyptian Religions and Important Egyptian Gods

Statues of the Egyptian gods

From days of long ago, ancient Egypt has venerated many gods and goddesses. Each of the ancient cities had their own patron god or goddess. Some even had different gods that represented the same ideal or symbol. For example, different cities had a different creator god, either Ra, Atum or Khepera.

Over time, these different gods were brought together to form a pantheon in the ancient Egyptian religion, each representing a different aspect of Egyptian life. The various dynasties even had "chief" gods such as Ra or Amun.

After Egypt came under the rule of foreign powers such as the Romans and the Arabians, its ancient Egyptian religion slowly began to be replaced by other religions such as Christianity and Islam.
