  • One of the magical places that gives this charming oasis. It rises on a rock about 4 Km from Siwa, at a point where once there was an ancient settlement, and is one of the most famous temples. Alexander the Great also turned to this oracle to have forebodings of his military campaigns, and from him he had the confirmation of his divine mission to found a large empire. Apparently, after his death, he was buried right here. Even the famous Queen Hatshepsut received the divine investiture here to ascend the throne of Egypt. A place of great charm and fascination. The view over the whole oasis that you can admire from here is splendid.

  • The ruin has little to offer other than the legend of Alexander the Great. Clearly it was a large complex it it hey day but there is little left to admire.  more »
