  • Passing through El Nasr Road, it's a great way to get through this special monument. This is the mind of the "famous" . Even though Egypt was built inside and outside the country, many Egyptian and Arab soldiers were erected. This is the most famous. It is also the tomb of Egypt's predecessor. He was stabbed nearby.

  • The monument is installed on one of Cairo's main roads, so it can be seen from afar. The huge pyramid seems unclear during the day, but it turns at night thanks to the backlight. Therefore, I advise you to go check out the memorial in the evening, when dusk is thick.

  • You can't drive through this point on El Nasr Road without noticing this unique monument. It's a memorial place for the "unknown soldier" and the grave of an assassinated former president of Egypt. A good sight. Check it up if you are a tourist in Cairo.!
  • Many Unknown Soldier Memorials for Egyptian and Arab soldiers were constructed inside and outside Egypt. The most famous is the one in Cairo.
