    One of the Christian Churches in Coptic Cairo
    It is a small Christian Church located at the Coptic Cairo. At the center of this church is a red banner with the picture of Mary. Behind it is an altar with the Holy Eucharist. There was line going to the Crypt, did not visit this part due to time constraints.

    Very interesting church in Cairo
    My wife and I visited this church during our tour of Cairo this past December. It was raining that day, which was one of the few days each year that it rains in Cairo. The legend of the church is that Joseph and Mary lived in a cave in what is now the lower part of the church while they were hiding out in Egypt. It was very interesting to visit this church.

    The Coptic side of Cairo
    Egypt is not only a Muslim country. There's also a well-nourished Coptic community, and this interesting church, named "Hanging" after its location above a gatehouse of the Roman fortress known as "Babylon Fortress", is one of their most important worship places. A legend tells that Joseph and Mary, with Baby Jesus, hid there when they escaped from Palestine.

    The Oldest church in Egypt so definitely worth it
    Not exactly "hanging" for me because it was actually built on a top of an old Babylonian fortress. But considering this is the oldest church in Egypt today its totally worth a visit. They kept some very old books inside and you could practically smell the whole collection. Do keep in mind that this place was quite difficult to find so I think its better to join a tour.

    A beautiful small Coptic chuch in the middle of Cairo
    A beautiful small coptic church that sits about 6 m above the ground. The Coptics represent about 15% of the population and are more in the south where their religious practices are stricter. The church has some exquisite relics and the pews are original, with carved fishes and grape bunches. Very close to the Christian cemetry and Jewish synagogue. A real gem.

    Relics
    Saint Virgin Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church is one of the oldest Coptic churches in Egypt dating from the 3rd century AD though extensively modified in the 13th and 18th centuries. Originally built on the walls of a Roman fortress the ground land has risen so it no longer appears as high as it once was. As you approach you will see some very pretty modern mosaics on the walls. It is very ornate inside with a wooden barrel roof supported by columns and small stained glass windows. It displays many important icons and relics mostly on the left hand side. It was a bit crowded on the Saturday morning we visited on our tour of Coptic Cairo.

    A special place
    The Hanging Church is located in Cairo's Coptic Area. The church took its name from the place where it is built, namely on the tower of the entrance gate to the Roman fortress of Babylon. From ancient Roman times until now, the ground has risen by almost six meters, which makes the visual impact of the place where the church is built to be greatly reduced – in fact, as an unsuspecting visitor you do not even realize why it is called hanging. I was particularly impressed by the churchyard, which is an oasis of peace and beauty.
