Qasr Ibrim

Qasr Ibrim is an ancient nubiain fortress built on a high hill overlooking the Nile opposite from Aniba village.

 

This area is located 235 km south of Aswan, and in ancient Egyptian times was known as Per-Mit. That became "Premis" during the Greco-Roman times and then Ibrim during Arabic times

 

The area is full of monuments that date back to various parts of Egyptian history, including tombs of the Nubian rulers during the New Kingdom times who ruled Nubia during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmosis III.

 

The Citadel had a very important rule throughout ancient Egyptian history and later times. During the Christian era, a church was built there and was dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This area has yielded many artifacts that are now on display at the Nubian museum.
