Abydos is nothing more than simple deserted rural town. It is located about 11 kilometres west of the Nile, near the modern Egyptian towns of el-‘Araba el Madfuna and al-Balyana. Inhabitants are poor and innocent. However, this town is really famous in the world. Because there are the massive remains of the ancient King Seti 1st’s temple.
Even build a house, they do not build the roof. Very little rain here since, they just put palm leaves on top of the house.
Local people use a donkey as a vehicle even now, feeling sorry for a donkey.
The people are poor but the mosque is luxurious. Still people may be happy?
For the Ancient Egyptians, Abydos was one of the holiest sites in the world. As the cult center of the god Osiris and gateway to the underworld, it was a popular place of pilgrimage and burial.
