"The well in the Synagogue yard" Coptic Cairo - Ben Ezra Synagogue Tip by vesna04

  The Well
by vesna04

As I mentioned it in the previous tip, Moses was found here by Pharaoh's doghter. The picture shows the well where, according the legend, he was found. It is situated in the back yard of the synagogue. However, other stories tell us that the Synagogue was built over that particular place.
One thing is for sure, this Sinagogue is home to so many stories and mysteries and is entarely up to us to belive in them or not.

Address: Misr Al Qadimah, Cairo Governorate
