Thebes Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 9 photos

  West Thebes - Mosque
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

It was natural to see mosques in each city and big settlements because the Islam is the state religion of Egypt and it profess about 93 % of the population (about 7 % of the population of Egypt are orthodox Copts). The mosque is a cult building of Moslems. The herald - muedzin - calls for fulfillment of a pray.

Earlier this appeal was disclosed from a minaret. Now loudspeakers as a rule are established on minarets. We saw one of such mosques with a beautiful minaret near to Deir el-Bahri. In comparison with antiquities of West Thebes this mosque seemed almost new and modern.
