The city of the dead is one of the largest graveyard in Egypt, home to thousands of tomb stones dating back as early as 14th century. It was traditionally a burial ground for Era conquerors and their relatives. From a distance, set against Cairo’s skyline, it looks like a shanty town, but this is a burial ground with a difference. The city of the dead is full of grave stones, tombs, and living people. Cairo’s estimated population ranges anywhere from 14 to 18 million. People are desperately searching for work. The city of the dead offers cheap, and for many, even free accommodation. No one knows for sure how many live in these makeshift cities. Estimates are between 30,000 and 5 million. Some dwellers manage to make a living by guarding the tombs for a few dollars a day here. It’s a basic existence, not sanitary or electricity.

 

When we wake up, if there is a body to bury, we dig a way for the funeral to start, then we bury the corpse. But whenever I get work outside the city of the dead, I'll go and do that.

 

It’s just as well he doesn’t pay rent here. He only earns a few Egypt pounds a day, barely enough to feed his family.

 

Life is more difficult here than on the outside. If I can get a regular work outside,we would have a normal life. We are earning a living here. But the life outside the cemetery is beautiful and better.

 

And so the grave dwellers scrape by, not knowing whether they will be able to move out of the city of the dead.
