This tree provided shelter for Holy Family during their stay in Egypt. This tree has been a destination for pilgrims for many centuries. The present tree grew from a shoot planted in place of the original tree but the tradition of the tree continues to live on. The original tree miraculously opened to give refuge for the Holy Family from two brigands pursuing them at the time.At the same spot baby Jesus created a welland the Holy Virgin Mary used its water to bathe Jesus, also balsam plant grew there.

Musturud has the church of Virgin Mary, one of the places of shelter for Holy Family while in Egypt. It still has the cave and the well of the Holy Family.

Overlooking the Nile in Maadi is a church of Virgin Mary that was built on the spot where the Holy Family crossed the Nile to the western bank in Giza. in 1976 a holy bible was carried by the water of the Nile to the bank below the church. It was opened to the page of Isiah 19:25 declaring, "Blessed be Egypt My People". it is now preserved in a glass box inside the church.
