Egypt | Cairo | Alexandria
Egypt, officially the “Arab Republic of Egypt” is a sovereign country located in the Northeast African corner and Southwest corner of Asia.
The country joins the two continents by a natural land bridge called the “Sinai Peninsula”. The country has a strong strategic and geopolitical position in the world and is one of the most powerful and a leading country in the Muslim world.
The country has also one of the richest ancient and cultural heritage, being home to various ancient sites, most notably the “Pyramids of Giza”. The country also has the second largest economy in the African region.
Moreover, Egypt is a founding member of the United Nations, Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
The history of Egypt is one of the oldest in the world dating back to approx. 10000BC. It is estimated that the earliest people settled near the Nile river and started agricultural activities.
As the time passed, various kingdoms and civilizations flourished in Egypt and the region became one of the first to do research, create ancient marvels and structures, and develop in literature, philosophy, writing, science, etc. This is the reason the region is regarded as the “Cradle of Civilizations”.
The Pyramids were created during the “Old Kingdom Period”. The Persians also ruled the region for a brief period of time which were replaced by the Romans and afterward the Byzantines. Finally, by the 7th century, Muslims armies began to arrive and conquered entire the Middle East and North Africa.
Since then, Islam is the predominant religion of the country and is thriving in the country since. The Muslims shaped the architect and culture of Egypt and built several mosques, etc. that can still be seen today.
Afterward, Egypt was ruled by different Muslim empires like Abbasid dynasty, Fatimid Caliphate, Mamluks, the Ottomans and at last by the Muhammad Ali Dynasty.
Some of the Muslims wonders of that time include “Mosque of Amr ibn al-As (built in the 7th century), “Mosque of Ibn Tulun” (built in the 9th century) and many more. Muhammad Ali Dynasty was the last dynasty that ruled Egypt until 1952 when it was overthrown.
After the independence was achieved, the country engaged in wars with neighboring Israel, the last of them was the “Yom Kippur War” in which Egypt stunned the whole world due by the combat tactics and efficiency used by the Egyptian Army and this event forced Israel to negotiate a peace treaty with the Arab world.
Most of Egypt’s covered land features deserts and the Rocky Mountains. This is the reason the majority of the country’s population is situated along the “Nile River” or “Nile Delta” from the ancient times till today.
Bordering countries of Egypt include South Sudantowards the South, Gaza Strip and Israel towards the Northwest, while Libya lies toward its South. The famous waterway, which is known as the “Suez Canal” is also situated in Egypt which shortens the sea distance of approx. 6,000 kilometers.
Egypt has a diversified economy, depending on various sectors. Agriculture, industries, services, petroleum, international remittances, and various other sectors keep the economy running.
The economy is also growing at a swift pace and is considered to be one of the largest economies of the future. Suez Canal also helps in bringing a large amount of income as thousands of ships pass through the Canal each year.
Ethnic Egyptians are the largest ethnic group in the country. Other minorities such as Turks, Greeks, etc. are also living in the country. Also, there are millions of Syrians, Sudanese, Eritrean, etc. (refugees) living in the country.
Arabic is the official and by far the largest language of the country. Islam is the predominant religion of the country followed by a countable minority of Christians.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
