Hanging Church 0709

Hanging Church 0709

Most famous Coptic church in Cairo. The nave of the church was built over the Babylon Fort (see below), thus it was called the "hanging" or "suspended" church. It has been renovated many times, and does not appear very old, but a church has been on this site since the 3rd century.
