Stones that came from Egyptian Pharaonic temples

It is noted that this fortress used in its construction stones that came from Egyptian Pharaonic temples and were completed with red bricks, so that the Babylon Fort became one of the most important Coptic monuments in Egypt. Nothing remained of its buildings except the tribal door, which had two towers. The Hanging Church was built on top of one of these towers. It was also built on top of the tower at the entrance to the tribal museum, the Roman Orthodox Church of St. George.
