This place has several buildings for many purposes: reception, mosque, harem, working and entertainment places, etc. One museum is not available yet. Most of the territory is full of trees from around the world, you even can get lost there :) Arabesque style in which the design of most of the rooms made is stunning, want to have some pieces...

I learned that this Palace "Museum" was under a refurbishing phase but yet I never been there before so I don't know how it used to be... All I can say is I loved the royalty at its historical value and richness... Entry fees are very low and totally worth it... An experience to go through for a blast from... More

The palace is open after years of reconstructions. The entrance fee is 5 LE for Egyptians, 100 LE for foreigners (not really fair, hm?) and 25 LE for foreign students. Anyway, I think it worth it because the place is really attractive. The palaces are renewed, the greens are well planted and watered. In Saturday the palaces were crowded. The... More

Still closed to the public as of mid December 2014. Unlikely to be open any time soon. Because of the very high walls there is little to see from the outside. The palace does appear to be in use for special events however.

I was invited to a wedding here by a client, whose daughter was getting married. Given the family name and the company expected, I did not hesitate in accepting the invitation. I wangled an invitation for my colleague as well, who was here on business from HQ. Knowing he appreciates beautiful women and with plenty of empirical evidence from my... More

I first visited this delightful palace about 10 years ago and have been trying to revisit during the past two years since living in Cairo but the palace is still closed. I keep checking in the hopes that it will open soon but with so few tourists in Egypt at present the doors are remaining firmly shut. I do know,... More

Manial isn't really the best place in Cairo however, the palace inside is so beautiful the garden with the high walls and palm trees.
