  • Abutting the clouds minarets of the new golden mosque of Al Mina in Hurghada. the colorful smell of the fish market located nearby, right outside the walls of the mosque. The bustle of the eastern bazaar in the neighborhood of pacifying serenity and devotion to the Almighty. Places are required to visit anyone who wants to understand the spirit of this Hurghada.
