Many of the Pilgrims passing through Helwan, make a halt, and encamp there for the night. This affords visitors an opportunity of seeing one of the most typical and picturesque sights in al Egypt. On the return journey no halt is made, the pilgrims being eager to reach their homes. Satisfied with having accomplished their pilgrimage, and tired out with their week of excitement and festivities.
