Phoenix. It is the capital and most populous city in the U.S. State of Arizona, and is the sixth most populous city in the nation, with a population of 1,445,632 according to 2010 census data. Its name originates from Egyptian mythology that says that the phoenix rose from its own Ashes after being consumed by fire.
Located in the middle of a barren, arid valley and surrounded by mountain peaks, the city of Phoenix is located in the central area, south of the state of Arizona, in the United States. Surrounded by the small communities of Sun City, Scottdale, Tempe and Mesa, the central area of the city houses several tall buildings in the middle of horizontal extended areas. Due to its location near the Sonora Desert, Phoenix is the origin of the huge 10-meter-high cactus called saguaro and although arid, it is a strangely beautiful place.
Phoenix is home to Arizona State University, as well as the Grand Canyon and Phoenix University; and institutions such as Phoenix College, the Colorado Institute of Arts and the Clinton Institute of Technology.
