Qasr Qarun Sun Festival In Fayoum



A spectacular event occurs just once a year at the Temple of Qasr Qarun in Fayoum, known as the ‘Wonder of the Sun’. Every December 21st, the suns rays beam down inside the Temple which is usually shrouded in darkness, then lights up the inner Temple as if by magic. The Temple was once the sanctuary for the God Sobek and an important place of worship. The date marks the start of the ‘Winter Solstice’ and is a wonderful reminder of the earth’s strange phenomenons.
