The natural beauty and the historical tales from here are never-ending, and the town holds a beauty that is unparalleled.
The inhabitants are ethnic-based called Berbers who speak the Siwi language. The oasis is a beautiful palm grove with a big watering hole, which is frequented by animals. This huge region is filled with olive trees and date palms hovering around the horizon. There is a beautiful lake in the center and many villages surrounding them. There are around 300,000 palm trees, 300 freshwater springs, and at least 70,000 olive trees.
At the Siwa, you can visit the Temple Of The Oracle, which is located on the Aghurmi hill, which is around 4 km near Siwa. Until the 6th century BC, it was dedicated to Zeus. It is believed that kings have not been successful in sending armies to destroy the temple due to Oracle’s power.
The Temple Of Amun, an almost destroyed structure, with an inscribed wall showing all that had occurred then in those years is also worth visiting. It is believed that the Pharaoh Nectanebo of the 30th dynasty built it.
