Sights in Daraw
- Sort by:
Definitely worth seeing is the Nubian museum called Hosh al-Kenzi. Built in 1912 by the father of the current resident, Haj Mohammed Eid Mohammed Hassanein, the house is constructed in traditional Nubian style and decorated with Nubian artefacts mostly made from palm trees.
Most of the camels are brought up in caravans from Sudan to just north of Abu Simbel, from where they're trucked to Daraw. The rest walk to the market in smaller groups, entering Egypt at Wadi al-Alagi and making their way through the Eastern Desert. Camels are sold here each day of the week, but the main caravan of camels from Abu Simbel, sometimes as many as 2000 of them, is brought to market on Sunday.
