The main and really only attraction of this town just south of Kom Ombo is the camel market. Sometimes up to 2,000 camels are bought to the market, which is usually liveliest on Sundays. Most of the camels come from the Sudan in caravans up to Abu Simbel, where they are trucked the remainder of the way.
