Perfectly situated on the west bank of the Nile, Sohag has only recently become a tourist destination. Archaeological finds confirming Sohag’s importance during ancient Egyptian times have brought the city to the forefront. A major stronghold for the Coptic Christian community of Egypt, Sohag is home to the Red and White Monasteries. It also has two sites of ancient repute — the Temple of Ramses II and the statue of Meret Amun, Ramses II’s daughter — that were discovered only a few years ago. The nearby city of Akhmim provides a short day-trip out of Sohag for tourists.
