Suspended Church (Hanging Church) - Israel Tours

Believed to have been completed between the 7th and 9th centuries on top of the former Water Gate of the Babylon fortress

It has proved to be somewhat difficult to date the al-Muallawa church as a result of its many renovations throughout the years, though it s believed to have been completed between the 7th and 9th centuries on top of the former Water Gate on the south-facing wall of the Babylon fortress. Visitors to this location can still view the gate through a hole in the baptistery’s floor. There are two bell towers which stretch 13 m skyward. Major events in the Coptic calendar are celebrated beneath its vaulted ceilings. The church’s impressive collection of chalices, censers, and crosses in gold, gilt, and silver go on display during the Enthronement of the Patriarch. If you are interested in viewing some of the ancient churches of Egypt, Israel Tours highly suggests stopping at al-Muallaqa Church during your travel in Egypt.
