Egypt: Destinations - The Bahariya Oasis

Bahariya -- The Past

See our Feature Article on the Bahariya Oasis

Bawiti is the largest village in the Bahariya oasis; its picturesque hillside quarter overlooks lush palm groves irrigated by the Ain al-Beshmo, a natural spring hewn from the rock in Roman times which gushes water at 30 degrees C. The neighboring village of al-Qasr was built on the remains of a 26th dynasty temple - nearby, at Qarat Hilway, you can still see tombs with paintings dating from the same period.
