It was really interesting to visit this place and know about our country’s history and heritage. I consider this place as one of the hidden gems in Fayyoum. It is also very close to the city and doesn’t need much time to reach there.

The palace and Quta village tell an important part of history, but they are neglected. they can be improved to offer a better attraction and be properly placed on the tourism map.
