Garbage city and Monastery of Saint Simon

Egypt is not the only Pharaonic civilization, but it also combines several of the most important civilizations of the Islamic and Christianity. The massive cave church of Cairo’s Zabbaleen community is one of the largest Christian churches in the Middle East. It is also known as the Monastery of St Simon, and it is located in the Mokattam Mountain in southeast Cairo. The Cave Church is incredible and can seat 20,000 people. The area is known as ‘garbage city’ due to the large number of garbage collectors or ‘Zabbaleen’ that live there. Garbage City is a district in Cairo, Egypt. The city is built on garbage and it is part of daily life for the people. The Zabbaleen collect garbage from all over Cairo and bring it back here to sort, recycle and salvage.However, since the people are exposed to rubbish from childhood, it is nothing out of the ordinary for the people to live in streets lined with mountains of litter, waiting to be sorted or processed, the friendliness and sincerity of the people is unparalleled with any other Egyptians you will meet. So catch the chance to try this fantastic experience to be closed from these people and their life.
