Holiday Highlights
Overview
Highlights / General details Morning pick-up from your hotel in Cairo, via air-conditioned vehicle, to drive on the way to Fayoum. Only 47 miles (76 kilometers) south of Africa's most populated city of Cairo, lies the oasis town of Fayoum. The main attraction in this tranquil town are the wooden waterworks, yet another example of the ingenuity displayed by ancient Egyptian engineers. Originally named Crocodilopolis, then Arsinoe, Medinet El-Fayoum was the main place of worship of the crocodile god, Sobek. Of interest are the huge wooden waterwheels, another incredible engineering feat by the ancient Egyptians, though less known than the mighty Pyramids. The waters of the Bahr Yusef are distributed throughout the oasis from Medinet, the capital of the Fayoum. Approximately 200 of the great waterwheels are located throughout the oasis. A great stone obelisk was erected in honor of Senwosret I in Abgig during the 12th Dynasty.
