Sakkara is a very large open air desert area, and there is a lot of walk. It's about one hour driving from Cairo and about half hour driving from Giza Pyramids.

The walls of these tombs are covered by beautiful scenes in colored high relief of the daily life of ancient Egyptians. (MERIROUKKA is the largest tomb)

Despite the fact that the pyramid itself looks in bad shape and not very attractive to go into but when you go inside it you will be surprised by its marvelous decorations. The inner chambers walls are covered by beautiful hieroglyphic inscription written in vertical columns, these are the famous religious texts known as the Pyramids Texts.

Sultan Hassan,

Personal/Private tour Cairo, Egypt

In fact, many guide books refer to it as the finest ancient mosque in Cairo, and has been
 praised as one of the major monuments of the Islamic world. This monument is best seen
 in the morning, when the sun lights up the mausoleum and the western iiwan.
The founder of this gigantic monument was
Sultan Hassan, the son of the great Mamluk

Sultan, Al Nasser Mohamed Ibn (son of) Qalawoun. also a great builder, but the Sultan Hassan Mosque remains the most important monument of this period. Sultan Hassan imported engineers from throughout the world to build his great monument.  

The mosque is located near the Citadel, specifically in Salah El Din Square, sometimes referred to as Qala's Square.

The Refa'i Mosque

Personal/private tour Cairo, Egypt

The Refa'i Mosque is located next to Sultan Hassan Mosque in Salah El Din Square near the Citadel in Cairo. Actually, it is separated from the mosque of Sultan Hassan by a pedestrian street. As I entered this lane I was overwhelmed by the huge structure of the Refa'i Mosque and the tiny details of the decorations on its exterior walls, and by the large marble columns that are a part of the entrance portal. The designers and builders of this grand mosque paid considerable attention to every single detail of its ornamentation. (tombs of LATE KING FAROUK,FOUAD and FOUAD’S MOTHER )

the Shah of Iran. tomb of Mohamed Reda El Bahlwy, who died in exile in South Africa in 1944, and was returned to Iran after World War II. Part of the burial chamber is currently occupied by Reza Shah's son, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, who died in Cairo in 1980. For Iranians who find themselves in this mausoleum there is poignancy for an emperor who reigned for 37 years .
