Palm Trees in Alazhar Park




Sohir Elfahham contributed this beautiful picture of palm trees in Alazhar Park. The Alazhar Park is important for tourists to Egypt because this hilly site is surrounded by the most significant historic districts of Islamic Cairo.The creation of the 30 hectare (74 acre) Al-Azhar Park on Al-Darassa, by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, came when his highness the Aga Khan decided to donate a park to the citizens of Cairo in 1984, out of the Islamic belief that we are all trustees of Gods creation and therefore must seek to leave the world a better place than it was before us. The Alazhar Park features shaded walkways, a childrens play area, a museum and a stunning hilltop restaurant and lakeside cafe.
