Monastery of Saint Jeremiah Serapeum
Photo by Raymon Kondos © 2009 Your Egypt

To some distance south of the Unas pyramid causeway lies a 5th century Christian monastery. This monastery was destroyed in the 10th century by the Arab invaders.

It remained unexcavated till its discovery in early 20th century. The Egyptian government took all its valuables and they are now on display in the Coptic museum. What remained from the early construction of the monastery is nothing but almost-buried ruins.
