Nice place to spend 2-3 hrs if you have an extra day in Cairo or had enough of mummies and pyramids. Not crowded as it is not advertised by tour companies but definitely worth a visit. Paid 100LE for entrance and 50LE for the camera.

It's called Mohd. Ali palace & majority don't know the name Menial palace. This place has a garden and a palace & museum. The architecture & interiors in gold plating's are amazing. The museum contains stuffed animals hunted by the kings. A pity sight.
