El Fayoum

.

El Fayoum is part of the Tentative list of Egypt in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Oasis of Fayoum was one of the first places in Egypt where agriculture was practised. Cities and religious centers like Karanis and Krokodilopolis developed here (now reduced to archaeological sites).
