According to our guide, these tombs go back to the times of Alexander the Great. There are a few tombs and appears to be about 50 burial slots. Not a lot of information about this spot and our guide stated not too many people visit the site. Would like to know more

Not much to see here so we didn't pay the admission to enter and shot our photos from the outside. You can see the site through the bars of the iron fence. More convenient to visit than the tombs of Mustafa Kamil however.

Great Collections.. but no proper explanation or proper guide. Need more english translation posters for better understanding. At the entrance, no sign board available.

It doesn't sound or look interesting from the outside but when we had a guided tour it was just amazing knowing all that history behind it

This place is just like an old cemetery. U dont have to pay 20pound if u want to see it from outside the gate, which for me is good enough. U can see everything clearly from the outside. For me its not worth spending 20 pound to see from inside

Entry cost 20 EGP for foreigners and my friend and I... More
