Abydos, city of pilgrimage of the Pharaohs is part of the Tentative list of Egypt in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Abydos was a sacred city since the First Egyptian Dynasty. The archaeological complex holds the remains of a city, a pyramid and a funerary temple, a cenotaph, a temple with terraces and the sanctuaries of queen Tetisheri. Nearby at Umm El Qa'ab Royal necropolises have been unearthened.

I visited this tentative WHS and it is incredibly interesting as are all the ancient Egyptian sites. It is one of the oldest cities in Egypt and a must visit necropolis for the Egyptology enthusiasts. The King List was the highlight of my visit.
