The palace reopened its gates for visiting after several years of restoration. It is a fabulous palace of prince Mohamed Aly. He was an architect and this is obvious in the magnificence of the palace and how grand it is. Take note of the ceilings in each room as they are different in each one. The gardens are not opened...

After 2 and half weeks in Egypt we visited the Manial Palace on our last day. Wow! What a highlight. 36 different ceilings ... every room and every building is a unique experience. I said to my wife that this Manial Palace experience just filled me with joy.

We love this not much visited museum. Because it's a former royal palace you can get an idea of what it was like to be royal in Egypt. The trophy room is a bit strange but it's definitely authentic. One can imagine what life was like in the past for the royals. Great piece of history and you'll likely not... More

So we went to Mohammed Ali's palace first before his mosque. This is set in lovely grounds by the Nile. Many different buildings and really lovely full of history too. We enjoyed this day and saw some amazing things. Lovely mosque inside too amazing old old trees and lovely walk around gardens. Certainly worth seeing
