The Town of Sohag in Egypt


Upper Egypt

Located about 72 miles south of Asyut, the City of Sohag is the capital of the Sohag governorate. It is also a major Coptic Christian center for Upper Egypt. There is little here other than the White and Red Monasteries just outside town. Of somewhat more interest is the town of Akhmin just across the river. Most tourists visit this area as a day trip.
