A family in the Egyptian desert in the north of the country has named their house after a deity whose real name is “death.”
According to the Associated Press, the family’s son, Ali, told the news outlet he first heard about the house by a friend who worked in the area.
He said he then called his mother to ask what the name was.
Ali’s father, Hassan, said the house was named after his mother, who was born in 1924 and died in 1958.
“She was the only person I knew who did not die,” Hassan told the AP.
“I can’t say why, because I never thought she would die.”
The house was built on the site of a temple that housed the tomb of Amenhotep III, the founder of the Egyptian pharaohs dynasty.
The house is on the edge of the desert and has been inhabited by locals since the 1930s.
