Jebel Barkal, Sudan

The archaeological area of Jebel Barkal is located 400 km north of Khartoum, next to the modern town of Karima. In this archaeological area two zones can be distinguished: a burial and a worship zone. Both zones are spread around the mountain that gives its name to the site and which the Egyptians and Nubians identified as sacred, being the birthplace of the god Amon.
