30th of April

Oops, who put the door there?

This is Abu El-Haggag mosque in Luxor. It was built on top of Luxor temple when the temple was still half buried in the sand hence the door is so up. The mosque is said to be built in 13th century but perhaps the minaret is even older. The mosque has been through many renovations, also at the moment as you can see. The picture of the door is taken in 2005.
