Do you think it’s located in Asia? Even I thought the same but that is not true.
The world’s oldest monastery is located in Africa, that too on the land of mummies, EGYPT. The name is ‘Monastery of Saint Anthony’. It is situated in an oasis in the Eastern Desert of Egypt which hidden deep inside the Red Sea Mountain. The monastery was established by followers of Saint Anthony who was the first Christian Monk. Saint Anthony is also known as Father of all Monks. He was also the founder of Christian Monasticism
This monastery was built in between 298 – 300 AD
This monastery is located some 330 kms away from the capital city of Cairo. There are lot of public transport options available. You don’t have to spend more than ₹1500 to reach here. So whenever to plan to visit on the great pyramid of Giza, do not miss this oldest monastery of the world
