Basilica of Ptolemy III, Hermopolis
Egypt

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

This view, from atop a mud brick hut, shows the nearby remains of a Ptolemeion for Ptolemy III repurposed as a Roman-period Christian basilica. The expanse on the other side, towards the northwest, is where the temples to Amun and Toth stood.

The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx.
