Former royal palace was recently reopened after a restoration project

The Manial Palace is a former royal palace that was built between 1899 and 1929 for Prince Mohamed Ali Tawfiq. It is located in the Manial district of Roda Island, on the Nile in central Cairo.

The palace, which is now under the control of the antiquities ministry, was recently re-opened after a ten year renovation project.
