Asyut (Egypt) river cruise port

Asyut is best known for being the capital city of the Ancient Egypt's Lycopolites Nome (the 13th out of 22) in the 3100 BC. The city's two main gods for worship were Anubis (god of death, depicted as a man with a dog head) and Wepwawet (aka Upuaut, god of war). The current-day city has Egypt's largest collection of early Christian / Coptic buildings (churches, caves) and manuscripts (has around 1/2 of all present in the country). Coptic Christianity (an orthodox religion) is still practiced today.
