Village of Mut 

The village of Mut is an ancient village and is considered the capital of the Dakhla Oasis. The name of the village is due to the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess "Mut", a sacred deity of the Theban Trinity. The oasis is still inhabited by a small number of locals and modernity is an advantage the place is gaining very quickly. The village is famous for its several restaurants, sulfur springs, beautiful palm groves, the remains of a famous ancient fortress, the medieval Islamic cemetery, its buildings, adobe houses, and narrow lanes. It has winding streets around old mud-brick houses, and there is an old citadel that is the remains of the old town.
