Egypt State Information Service

Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Zahi Hawas opened in Dammietta Monday three ancient mosques.

Restoration works on the three mosques began five years ago with a total cost of 57 million EGP.

The three mosques are Amr Bin Al-Ass which is considered the second mosque built in Egypt and Africa which was established but the high level of subterranean water resulted in the closure of the mosque for more than 30 years.
