More than just an amazing sacred place, Mount Sinai, Egypt, has deep significance for members if the Abrahamic religions (essentially the monotheistic sects that worship Abraham’s God; Jewish, Christian, Muslim); here it is believed is also the site of the ancient biblical Mount Sinai where God delivered the Ten Commandments to Moses. For pious pilgrims that believe in God, this is indeed a revered place to visit, and to worship and pray.
The mountain itself, from a purely geographical standpoint, is a reddish colour, sitting at 2,285 metres (7,297 feet) above sea level. It is rounded, which suggests an older mountain within a range of similar topography on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and embraces a beauty of its own. Even if you’re not religious, Mount Sinai carries an air of venerable beauty to it.
Many major western cities have a hospital named Mount Sinai, and that underscores the importance of this mountain, one of the most sacred places in the world for Christians, Muslims and Jews. Mount Sinai appears extensively in the Bible and the Quran, with the Book of Exodus in the Bible featuring the mountain. How harmonious it would be for all three factions to be reminded of their common, and deep connection following a visit to Mount Sinai, Egypt.
