Hermopolis temple and El Ashmunein village
Egypt

These three linked panoramas of Hermopolis are among the less photogenic, but quite interesting for what they show.

This view, from atop the wall of a small temple at the edge of the village of El Ashmunein, shows us that much of Egypt, away from the tourist destinations, is still very poor, with donkey as the main means of transportation. And as can be inferred from the state of this ruin, Egypt lacks the resources to maintain all but the most impressive specimens of its huge patrimony from the encroachments of population pressure. Currently, this temple is being used as a public toilet by animals and humans alike.
