Abydos appears to be a village in the modern Egyptian town of Al-Balyana, south of the Sohag governorate. It was the capital of the eighth Nome during Ancient Egypt. The Abydos Village lies 11 kilometres west of the Nile River at latitude 26° 10′ N.

Red Monastery

The Red Monastery, or Apa Psoi, is a Coptic Orthodox monastery named after an Egyptian saint called Psoi or Pishoy. Also, this monastery has the name Red Monastery, which comes from the colour of its outside walls’ construction materials.

These walls are considerably thicker at the base than at the top. Like these walls of Ancient Egyptian temples, they are surmounted by cavetto mouldings. The Red Monastery is architecturally similar to the White Monastery.

White Monastery

The Coptic White Monastery, Monastery of Abba Shenouda or the Athribian Monastery, is a Coptic Orthodox sanctuary named after Saint Shenouda, the Archimandrite. The monastery’s name is derived from the white limestone of its outside walls. The White Monastery is architecturally similar to the Red Monastery.

    Мене приваблюють цікаві історичні місця, особливо в такій країні, як Єгипет. Щодо до даної поїздки, то тут нас очікував тур по цікавим храмам та комплексам .
    Особливо сподобалось те, що з нами їздив досвідчений гід, який пояснював основні моменти та чому саме цей храм цінується у їх народу. Так, були дещо складні та незрозумілі місця, проте гід їх пояснював та показував.
    Також, у вартість входить і обід, у доволі гарному місці. Хоча б, годують смачно. Я залишився задоволеним такою подорожжю.
