beautiful attractions in Aswan is the Nubian Village deep south of Egypt where
Aswan city, you'll find that Aswan is surrounded by many small islands and
Nubian villages on the west bank. The Nubian villages are such a cheerful sight
for being painted with bright colors, and inhabited by Nubians. They speak
their own Nubian Languages and have specific traditions that are different from the rest of Egypt. Their origin goes back to Africa and Sudan when they traveled in
antiquity to south Egypt for farming around the Nile. The Nubian Villages are
considered to be Aswan city attraction and perfect for half Aswan day
tours if you are passing by the city. Visiting a Nubian
village is a must when traveling to Egypt. Between all Aswan attractions, this
could be the only trip that will capture your heart in all meanings. The Nubian
people are so friendly and overwhelming, great hospitality will be waiting for
you in one of the Nubian family houses. They have dark skin and speak a
language called Nuba or Nubian. The Nubian houses are made of mud and often
colored blue or orange. Palm trees and gardens are everywhere; they raise
chickens and goats mostly in their farms. Some locals if not farming, they
would live from selling handicrafts and women drawing Henna for tourists. Such
a wonderful trip for adults, kids and all ages.
Nubians still affected by ancient Egyptian
beliefs. They thought the crocodile body hanging over the house door can
protect its people from the evil eye, and that’s why you will probably find
crocodile mummified bodies all over the village's doors. Fishermen hunt the
crocodile and stuff them with a straw while keeping their mouth open and hang
them on their houses. They even draw crocodiles everywhere and can keep one or
two locked in a cage for tourists to take pictures with. The Nile crocodile was
worshiped in the time of the pharaohs as God called Sobek, and that’s why Nubians mummified the crocodile to prevent
evil things and adopted it as a tradition
