Picture of the day: St. George's Church in 'Mogamaa Al-Adian', Old Cairo
 St. George

Built by the wealthy writer Ignatius in 684 AD, it is one of the most beautiful churches of the Roman Fort

Unfortunately the church was devoured by fire in 1904 and only the reception hall known as the Hall of grooms was saved. It is an extremely important historical church with tourist coming from all over the world to see it.
