Do not miss this truly unique natural phenomenon occurring once a year. On December 21 during the winter solstice the sun aligns perfectly perpendicular to the Qasr Qarun Temple in Fayoum, lightning up its inner chamber, which remains in absolute darkness throughout the year.

As a rule, Sun festival phenomenon takes place between 6:45-7:00 am, which means you must be ready to leave the hotel room around 4:00 am to reach Fayoum on time. The Qasr Qarun Temple has 365 rooms in accordance to the number of days in a year, and the sun beams reach only one of them, the holy of the holies of the temple, where statues of the God Sobek were once placed and worshipped. This proves that ancient Egyptians had intimate knowledge of astronomy and were doing exact calculations.
