Rashda is often omitted from the circuit of Dakhla Oasis, but it is all
the same a nice little village. Especially the minaret of the Friday
Mosque (left) is notable, resembling a lighthouse. Much is unfortunately
in ruins, but it must have been a pretty place not too many years ago.
The faster growth of the new village of Rashda accounts to local
traditions. When a Rashdian man marries, he must provide a new house for
his wife. Some travel books call Rashda a clifftop village; this is
misleading, as there is no more cliffs beneath the houses here than in
other villages of Dakhla.
