Please fill out the form

Kharga Oasis is the capital of the New Valley Governorate, located 232 kilometers south of Assiut, and is known for its many monuments, springs, and tourist sites, as well as several cold and hot sulfur wells and springs with temperatures reaching 43°C.

History of the Kharga Oasis

Because it fills a wide dip in the desert, the Kharga Oasis is known as the Great Oasis, and its capital is Hibis.
Since the Thirteenth Dynasty (1786-1665 BC), the Kharga Oasis has been a stop on the desert caravan route between the Hyksos in Lower Egypt and the Kingdom of Nubia in the south. If the camel did not arrive in Egypt until 1000 years later, the caravans comprised around 1000 donkeys. The remnants of the world’s earliest integrated residential and administrative complex were discovered on August 22, 2010, by an Egyptian-American archaeological project. That dwelling area was discovered near Jabal Ghuwaitah in the Kharga Oasis’ Umm Al-Mawajir region.

The climate in Kharga Oasis:

The Kharga Oasis is known for its dry environment, with humidity levels seldom exceeding 9.5 percent throughout the year, making it one of the world’s healthiest winters.

Monuments of the Kharga Oasis:

1. The Temple of Hibis

The Temple of Hibis lies roughly a kilometer north of the city’s center. This temple is significant because it reflects the Ptolemaic, Persian, and Roman eras. It was created to worship the Holy Trinity during the Pharaonic era, during the twenty-sixth dynasty (Amon-Mot-Khensu). Inscription on the front section of King (Nakhtenboatemple )’s around 350 BC. The temple is approached from the east, with the Holy Lake first, then the marina, and finally the Roman gate, which bears a Greek inscription from the Emperor (Ghelbareign ) in 69 AD. The gate follows the rams’ path to the Great Gate, then to the main gate. It is positioned at the temple’s far end, the Holy of Holies, and has its own set of inscriptions.

2. The Bajwat cemetery

The Al-Bajwat cemetery is located three kilometers north of Kharga, behind the Temple of Hibis, and gets its name from its vaulted architectural style. The (Escape) cemetery, whose paintings depict the exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt, followed by Pharaoh and his army, and the (Peace) cemetery are the most notable of these graves in Egypt’s Coptic churches. Egypt’s Christian past is told via stories.

3. El Labkha (The ficus)

It’s about 13 kilometers north of Kharga, and it features the ruins of a fortress, a temple, and mud-brick tombs. There are also acacia and dom palm trees in the region, as well as a historic canal system that was used to gather water and irrigate the area during the Roman era.

4. The palaces of Nadura

It sits one kilometer from the city of Kharga, on the eastern side of the Temple of Hibis, and was given the name “Nadura,” which means “Overseer,” to serve as a control center throughout the Ottoman and Mamluk periods.

5. Mustafa Al-Kashef Palace

It’s behind the Bajwat cemetery, which is built on the foundations of a Roman fort. It’s a massive structure, and the oldest section of it is on the western side.

6. Al Ghuwaita Temple

It is located 21 kilometers. south of Kharga. It was constructed during the twenty-seventh dynasty for the adoration of the Holy Trinity (Amon – Mut – Khonsu). On the southern side of the temple, there exist inscriptions depicting Ptolemy wearing the crown of Upper Egypt, and on the northern side, the crown of Lower Egypt. The Holy of Holies marks the conclusion of the temple. The cottages in the shape of vaults were built next to it, and the building was completed. Ptolemy III, IV, and X, Ptolemy III, IV, and X, Ptolemy III, IV, and X.

7. Douch Temples in Paris oasis of Kharga

It is located in the desert 23 kilometers from Paris village. It was created to honor the Roman deity Saber Apis and the goddess Uzes. It dates from the reign of the Roman emperors, and depictions of the emperor giving gifts to the gods may be found on its walls.

8. The Temple of Al-Zayan

It is 25 kilometers south of Kharga and south of Al-Ghuwaitah Palace. The temple was established for the religion of Amun Hebet and was built during the Ptolemaic dynasty. The king presents a statue of Maat and the deity Amun, on the head of a ram, according to the inscriptions. The monastery is one of the old fortifications established to guard the caravan route at Darb Al-Arbaeen, some 30 kilometers north of Kharga, during the Roman Empire.

Antiquities Museum in Kharga

Many ancient archaeological artifacts discovered in Kharga are housed in the antiquities Museum in Kharga oasis, including Pharaonic paintings discovered in tiles in the area of the Dabba Castles, a statue of the god Horus and a statue of a crouching lion with a human face found in the Deir El-Hajar temple, as well as a group of Coptic era pottery and some pieces found in the Mut area in Dakhla.

The old Kharga

When concrete became available in the oasis as a more permanent construction material, residents began to abandon their ancient homes and replace them with bigger, more enduring structures. The historic homes/community are mud-brick structures with small, twisting alleyways that are roofed with dom-wood and palms, and each street has a gate that is locked when the Bedouins attack.

What People Say About Us

Thank you Egypt Fun Tours for a most memorable trip. I admit I didn’t do any of the planning (it was all done by my boyfriend) but as you can read in the reviews below Hani (the owner of Egypt Fun Tours) is superbly organized and accommodating with scheduling.

My boyfriend and I, and our dearest mutual friend, booked the 7Days-6Nights tour. In short time, we visited Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor sailing down the down the Nile, pit stopping to see key sites at these location – and so much more!!! We got to know the ancient and modern egypt in depth thanks to Hani’s impressive knowledge. He also enlightened us on the people and their beliefs and went as far as showing us what a typical life looks like. I cannot express the level of personalized service Hani offered us. He was flexible to adapt to our requirements and added sites to our schedule that was not part of the tour simply to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our experience in Egypt.

I went to Egypt practically blind-folded, not knowing what to expect, especially considering the time we had decided to go (December 2020 – we were the first group that Hani met with after months of having to put his tour agency on hold considering the pandemic) yet he managed to surpass all of our expectations. I felt so incredibly lucky for us to have stumbled on Hani. I would recommend Egypt Fun Tours to anyone and everyone. It was truly, HANDS DOWN, the best cultural experience I’ve ever had. You’ll be in the best of hands.

Hamada was incredible! So knowledgeable and kind. He had information about every item, street corner, and relic we looked at. Any questions we had, he had answers! He even made sure to give us tips while walking through the crowds so that’s we would feel more comfortable when being approached by vendors. Oh and the food?! He took us to the best places! Delicious food!! We tried Egyptian fried chicken, falafel for the first time, the best shawarma in the city (we love food). We even got to meet his beautiful wife and children and try some “French” Egyptian coffee in their home! Truly made friends for life!! We’ve promised to host him and the family when they travel to America for the first time! Such an incredible experience, and Hamada (and family) made it that much more memorable and amazing!

Excellent trip to historic sites with no one else around. We came to see Egypt while most places still had COVID19 fears. The staff at Egypt Fun Tours were professional, safe, and great to deal with. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I feel like I just got a a year of Egyptology in the last week and we had all the sites to ourselves due to COVID19. While people are shutting down and staying home you should feel safe to come explore with Egypt Fun Tours and have the place to yourself.
