Egypt: Siwa and the Western Desert - James Beriau

Jan. 22, 2013. Continuing by horse cart with our guide Rahim, we visited the temple of the Oracle, built between 663 and 525 BC. It perches on a rock that was once at the heart of the ancient settlement of Aghurmi. The Oracle's fame was widespread and Alexander the Great came here to consult it in 332 BC after liberating Egypt from Persian rule.
