It's called the hanging church because it's built over an old Roman fortress, known as the Babylon Fortress. It's suspended about 6 meters above the fortress. You can peer down below and see the ruins.
All over Coptic Cairo, you can find images of the Holy Family and their flight into Egypt. This one was outside the church.
The Coptic cross.
The boys enjoyed looking out the window at the site of the fortress being excavated.
The apse decorated with the Holy Virgin and the Twenty-four Elders of the Apocalypse.
Lots of postcards of Pope Shenouda, the leader of the Coptic Church.
