This abandoned monastery near the Agha Khan Mausoleum on the west bank at Aswan is considered to be notably typical of early Christian Monasteries, It is very likely that this will also include one substantial camel ride (about 15 minutes), it was one of the largest Coptic Monasteries in Egypt, begun in the 6th century, but it is believed that most building took place in the 7th century. It was first dedicated to Amba Hadra (Amba Samaan, Anba Hadra) a bishop of Aswan and saint of the late 4th century. This fortress Christian monastery originally had walls ten meters tall, with keeps or towers which were used as lookout posts against enemies, the monastery was rebuilt in the 10th century, but destroyed in 1173 by Saladin who feared that it might serve as a refuge of marauding Christian Nubians who made forays into southern Egypt IWNTA - SIGHTSEEING - Aswan - St. Simeon Monastery
