Bashendi village
In Bashendi village you will find one of the most colourful and well-kept old towns in Dakhla; there are mud-brick houses in many different colours and narrow lanes set in a luscious oasis. But Bashendi is more, it has a selection of interesting and old sights. The most important is a sanctuary of the holy Muslim man called Pasha Hindi, who as his name indicates may have been of Indian origin. It is after him that the village has been named.
Next to the sanctuary are some empty sarcophagi and a Roman-period tomb-temple, called Tomb of Kitnes. Inside the man Kitnes is depicted as meeting the desert gods Min, Seth and Shu.
Bashendi also makes a claim to fame by its production of carpets, embroideries, baskets and dresses, all according to old patterns. You won't have to search for this, vendors will spot you as you arrive along the only road into the village. If you have time you can accept the invitation to enter
