Egypt Feiran Oasis







The Feiran Oasis is situated between Saint Katherine`s Monastery and The Gulf of Suez and is also called the Pearl of Sinai. This oasis stretches for over 5 kilometers, being the Sinai`s largest oasis. The Feiran Oasis is also among the earliest Christians centers that appeared in Sinai. The legend says that Moses with his followers were in this oasis; more, Moses turned a rock into a spring to give water to his people who were thirsty. The supposed rock is situated at the oasis` Western entrance. The fact that the Feiran Oasis played an important religious role through the history is proven by the ruins of numerous churches that date from antiquity. During the 4th century AD Feiran was on the point of becoming an important religious center. An important religious tourist attraction is the Seven Girls Monastery which was constructed in the 4th century in the oasis` middle between the palm trees. The remains of an antique archbishopric also can be seen and from the top of the Gebel Tehuna the view of the oasis is wonderful. The Wadi Feiran is another significant tourist attraction being not only the largest wadi of Sinai but also the most important wadi as archeology. Numerous tourists and pilgrims come to this wadi and describe their walk here as a trip through history. More, Bedouins from many regions come here every year. The present Feiran Oasis has over 30.000 palm trees, and the center of the oasis stretches on 4 kilometers. At the Gebel Serbal`s foot grows numerous types of wild flowers, lemon trees and orange trees. The atmosphere in the Feiran Oasis` valley is a paradisiacal and full of mystery one due to the huge cliffs that are on the oasis` edges.
