The Chessboard City of Alexander the Great

The second largest city of Egypt after Cairo is the city of Alexandria. Geographically, it is located on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt around 179 kms in the north of Cairo. It is unique city named after the name of its creator, The Alexander the Great in 333 BCE. On his way to Oracle temple of Amun at the Siwa Oasis, the Alexander stayed at the village of Re-qdt that lied between the Mediterranean Sea and the lake of Mariott and decided to build a great city on that location. For this, he gave charge to his architect Dinocratis.

alexandria

In 323 BC, Alexander died in Babylon without ever seeing the city that was after his name. However, Dinocratis planned the city very differently like a chessboard, where two main streets got interlaced both vertically and horizontally extending both east to west and north to south. It had five districts named after first five Greek alphabets – Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon. Among these, alpha was basically a royal district that homes royal palaces, temples, museum, libraries and gardens; Beta was the district of Greek aristocracy; Gamma was home to local greek people; Delta was home to foreign minorities like Syrians, Persian and Jews and lastly Epsilon was home to local Egyptians.

Qaitbay Citadel

In the Roman Era, the city was built afresh by Romans bearing the name Nicopolis which means the city of victory. However, most of this was damaged due to disturbances, wars, revolts; natural disasters etc.

Climate of Egypt – unchanged since the days of Pharoes

Egypt has a typical hot desert type of climate.  It is usually dry. During summer, the temperature becomes very hot. Day temperature during summer is hot whereas in winter the day temperature is mild and pleasant. During the night the temperature falls drastically as sand emits heat as quickly as it absorbs. In order to describe the climate and rainfall in Egypt, one must understand its geographical location

The coastal region which lies to the north of Egypt experiences moderate type of temperatures, due to the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. Here, the temperature varies between a minimum average of 9.6 °C during night and 16 °C during the day in winters. During summer, the daytime experiences a temperature of 32 °C and during night, it comes down to 22 °C. It is not possible to describe the climate and rainfall in Egypt, without having a clear understanding about its topography

                      https://i0.wp.com/www.ask-aladdin.com/images/egypttemp.jpg

In the desert areas the temperature fluctuates significantly, particularly during summer. In summer the temperature may vary from 6 °C at night, to 41 °C during the day. In the winter season, the temperature remains more or less stable both during the day and night. During the night the temperature, at time drops down to 0 °C and during the day it could reach 18 °C.

Egypt experiences less than 81mm of rainfall yearly in maximum areas and nearly never rains during summer, though in the northern coastal regions, especially in Alexandria, the average yearly rainfall reaches up to 210 mm

Egypt is a pan continental country which has variable climatic condition, which prevails all round the year. For instance,Egypt receives an average annual precipitation of almost eighty one millimeters or even lesser than that, however, the coastal areas, due to their geographical position receives much more rainfall.
