Mohamed Ali Palace, Cairo, Egypt - It was previously known as Mohamed Ali Palace as an attribution to him, but now it is famously known as Manial Palace and Museum which is found in Al Saraya street, El Manial district of southern Cairo, Egypt. Mohamed Ali Tewfik was the owner of this palace and that is the reason why it was once referred to and known as Mohamed Ali Palace, until later on when it was transformed into a historic house museum that carries different antiquities related to the settings and lifestyle of the late 19th and early 20th century Egyptian royal prince and heir apparent. For those who enjoy visiting the real palaces where the old princes and kings used to live, this is one destination we recommend when it comes to visit Egypt. Mohamed Ali Palace, or Manial Palace as it is known, is a compound that is divided into five different buildings, these buildings have a lot of rooms and are also surrounded by Persian and English gardens as well as a small branch of the Nile. This palace carries the extensive art, silver, clothing, and furniture that used to belong to the middle ages. The design of the whole place is different and it seems that there was a lot of effort exerted in the bringing it to life. It was built in the European Art Nouveau and Rococo style that is mixed with some Islamic architecture. The interior design of the place takes the breath away and makes one think about how people used to live in such a place since there is a lot of ceramic tile work done. After all those years of the construction of the palace, it is still in a very good shape and the furniture placed inside is also different but yet in very good forms. This is not considered a so much visited place yet it deserves much more attention from the public, just in the same way they tend to visit and get impressed by Muhammad Ali Mosque that is located inside the citadel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwAAVYvQ9F4). Every single room found in every single building will take you through a different experience and will leave you always astonished with the different tiles that are used to give the room a different look and at the same time tend to give it a different feeling and atmosphere. This is considered a very good place to visit when it comes to the attractions near the middle of the city, since it is not much far away from the downtown area (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zlUl2rMTVo), and at the same time it is worth it for all the different things that you will manage to come across and see. To get the chance to enter all the rooms inside and make a good tour through the whole place, you have to be ready for spending about three or four hours in total. For those who have made their minds about visiting Mohamed Ali Palace, they should know that it opens everyday except Tuesday from 9 AM and closes at 4 PM, and better to avoid it on Friday during Friday prayer time because you will most probably find nobody there to help you if you want guidance. Mohamed Ali Palace entrance fee for the Egyptians is 20 Egyptian pounds, which means that it would be for about 40 Egyptian pounds for foreigners, and those who want to take pictures, they will need to pay extra 50 Egyptian pounds for the tour inside; not expensive for a magnificent place like this one. We know, there are a lot of things which might be considered much more important to some people when it comes to Cairo attractions, such as visiting the Egyptian Museum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pgdh-QkLrw), going to the Pyramids (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7qhZ75q304), or even visiting the citadel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_qG56zb6ck), but they have to dig deep because they will most probably find new gems hidden in every corner related to this country. Interested in getting to see more of the places and attractions related to this person who was the main reason behind starting modern Egypt? You could visit Muhammad Ali Mosque during the same day if you have enough time and if the other destination will still be open, in order to see how his buildings which were inspired by the Islamic world look like. There are lots of other places to visit in Cairo, Egypt, that will tell you more about the history of Egypt, such as Cairo citadel, the Egyptian Museum, going to the Islamic Art Museum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzH8HIUqKu0), visiting the Pyramids, giving the new grand National Museum for Egyptian Civilization a try (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xT-pJZz6tQ), and even getting the chance to walk through the old streets of Cairo which will take you to El Moez street and all the different old mosques that are found there (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yikKIDittSc), Khan El Khalili (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOn1afd3XOA), and will even take you through Al Azhar area. Mohamed Ali, or Manial, Palace should be definitely on your list of things to visit in Egypt and feel astonished with how those people used to live.
