Kharga is also the name of the bustling main city of the oasis whose inhabitants now number sixty thousand, including one thousand Nubians who were settled here after the creation of Lake Nasser. Although framed by the oasis, there is no oasis feeling to it; unlike all other oases in this part of Egypt.

The monuments and ancient sites of the Kharga Oasis: The Temple of Hibis, this temple is considered of significant importance as it represents different stages of the Egyptian history.

The Cemetery of Bagawat, the most important tombs of the cemetery is the tomb of Exodus which represents the Israelis going out of Egypt and the tomb of "peace' that contains reliefs of Jacob.
