Overview of El Tahrir Palace

  • Cairo was formed by accumulations and interactions over centuries, shaped by the unique Fatimid urban planning, from the thirteenth century till late sixteenth century.
  • During the reign of Khedive Ismail, in 1863, a general plan was set by the French engineer Housemann to extend Cairo’s area to more than a thousand feddans. In 1874, Housemann built the corniche and bridges, hence, emerged vast and bright squares, and social standards became more sophisticated after the establishment of ​Garden City and Zamalek districts
