The Hanging Church, Cairo: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About The Hanging Church

Situated at the heart of the Old Cairo, the Hanging Church depicts the sublime beauty of the ancient Coptic architectural style. Established in the late 3rd century AD, this glorious architectural marvel features over 100 holy icons and is inscribed with various Arabic and Coptic markings.

The church, in truth, has been created atop the Babylon Fortress’ southern gatehouse. Therefore, the whole scenario almost looks like the church is hanging mid-air without any support. Be sure to visit here as early as possible if you want to avoid human contact.
