Ottoman tombs and more near Qalamoun

Qalamoun, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Due to long time neglect, there is less and less to see of the Ottoman tombs near Qalamoun. Qalamoun was the village of Mamluk and Ottoman officials, therefore this distinct graveyard.
Another interesting place near Qalamoun is the artificial lake, which is quite beautiful. It is easy to miss, not being right next to the road.
