Nile Sun God?


Ra is the name given to the Nile sun god who traveled across the sky daily. He was considered to be the premier god, above the rest and that belief has led to debate about whether the Egyptian religion was monotheistic. The pyramids were built in his honor but didn't contain statues of him as the rays of sunlight were considered to honor Ra. He is considered to be a patron for the pharaohs and the pyramids were demonstrative of their link.
