Traditional Architecture


You don't have to go far out of the city to see houses built of the traditional mud brick. Like adobe, it is better insulation than modern building materials and since it really doesn't rain much on the west bank of the Nile, the melting factor is diminished. The bright paint that the villagers favour not only pleases the eyes but it also protects the mud from moisture.
