Budkhulu village

Mosque of Budkhulu village, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Ruined mansion of Budkhulu village, Dakhla Oasis, Egypt

Entrance to the Ayyubid mosque.

Among the villages that gets visitors, Budkhulu is among the smallest. The main attraction here is the 12th or 13th century Ayyubid mosque which looks almost like an old-style factory with chimney.
And just behind it, dark smoke might appear as it did during my visit. This was the place of an old style bakery, which you will be heartily invited to enter.

Old Budkhulu is falling apart, and something valuable will be lost forever.
