Wadi Natrun - Egypt

Wadi El Natrun is a town in Al Buhayrah Governorate, Egypt. In Arabic, its name translates into the Nitrate Valley due to the presence of eight different nitrate lakes in the region. In Coptic the region was known as Shee-Hyt, meaning the balance of the hearts or the measure of the hearts. In Greek it is known as Scetes, which means the ascetics. In Christian literature, the region is also referred to as the Nitrian Desert. In ancient times, natron was mined here for use in Egyptian burial rites.
