According to legend, the phoenix lives for many centuries. When at last it is old and tired, it flies to the city of Heliopolis, alights atop the temple of Ra and builds a nest of cinnamon bark. The following dawn, the sun god sends a spark which ignites the nest and creates a funeral pyre which consumes the bird. Later, a new phoenix arises from the ashes of its predecessor.
