Considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Ancient Egypt, the sacred city of Abydos was the site of many ancient temples, including Umm el-Qaab, a royal necropolis where early pharaohs were entombed.
 
Today, Abydos is notable for the memorial temple of Seti I, which contains an inscription from the nineteenth dynasty known to the modern world as the Abydos King List. It is a chronological list showing cartouches of most dynastic pharaohs of Egypt from Menes until Ramesses I, Seti's father.  
 
The Great Temple and most of the ancient town are buried under the modern buildings to the north of the Seti temple. Many of the original structures and the artifacts within them are considered irretrievable and lost; many may have been destroyed by the new construction.
 
The weather in Abydos is very dry and hot in summer. Between May and October the average temperature is 45°C (115°F) during the day. In winter, between November and April, the temperature average is 25°C (75°F) during the day.  
 
A day tour of the site is usually organized from Luxor.
