Devotions (The Hanging Church, Cairo) - DSC7949.jpg
Cairo, Egypt -- The Hanging Church (El Muallaqa) of St. Mary, is the most famous of Cairo's Christian churches.  It was built atop the sourther tower gate of the old Babylonian fortress in what is now Coptic Cairo and overhangs the original gate passage.  The interior of the church shows the unmistakable ornate decoration found in Coptic (Orthodox) churches. © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com
