“Landmark”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

a conspicuous landmark on the West bank of the Nile, the Aga Khan Mausoleum was closed by the Begum, his widow, years ago, due to the litter left by the crowds of visitors, who obviously lacked respect and ignored that this is a grave, and that the Ismaelians are a very tolerant, benevolent branch of Islam

“Glad we visited whilst still open”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Whilst nile cruising we visited the Aga Khan Mausoleum twice, the second time I was lucky to be able to add my name to the visitors book as it was very quiet.

Not long after we were told it was closed to visitors.

Quite sad that we are no longer able to visit, the scenery is brilliant, I remember at the time it was a bit of a trek but now so glad we did it.

“Shame the Mausoleum is closed..”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was in Aswan last week(27th & 28th July),i was told by one of the locals that the Aga Khan's Mausoleum was closed 15 years ago because someone set a fire in there and there were no plans to reopen it.How true this is i don't know but it's a shame,me and my husband were in Aswan in 1991 and went inside the Mausoleum and i remember thinking what a beautiful building it was,what a waste,it was a big tourist attraction.

“The Aga Khan”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

You can not actually apporoach the Mausoleum as it is kept private - it is a splendid building and can be seen from the Nile. The story of how the Aga Khan came to be so devoted to Aswan is very touching.
