Mut represents the original settlement of Dakhla. Today it is the largest and most modern settlement in the oasis. Not without charm it clearly not what visitors come far away to see. Mut's main attraction is the hotels and the basic but friendly restaurants.
There is an old town here as well, a labyrinth of mud-brick houses and winding lanes. Little now remains of the old town citadel still remains, but on its original location you will have the finest views over the town and the palm groves.
It appears that old Mut is about to be abandoned, there are few inhabited houses, but much is neglected. It is like the people just wait for a signal that they can move into a standard concrete flat. And it is sad, old Mut must have been beautiful some decades ago.
Around Mut, there are numerous sulphur pools, but most are a short bicycle ride out of town.

Mut's first touch modernity, the Faruk mosque, which looks like a happily decorated cream cake. Quite nice I think, although others might feel that "kitch" is a more correct term.
