Historic Cairo Restoration Campaign Kicks off in El Moez Street

El Moez Street in Cairo

Three Islamic monuments have been restored and inaugurated in El Moez Street in old Cairo as part of the national campaign launched by the Ministry of Antiquities in 2015.

The campaign targets the restoration of 100 monuments in historic Cairo. The campaign basically focuses on saving historic buildings that have not been under maintenance.

The three restored monuments are the Sabil-Kuttab of Khesru Pasha, the Qubbet Nagm El-Din Ayyub and Mohib El-Din El-Tayeb Hall.

Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany said that the newly inaugurated edifices are the first batch of a restoration campaign that includes seven monuments. The ministry has allocated EGP 9 million to restore these seven, reported by Ahram Online. 

Islamic Cairo, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, remains a living reminder of the city’s past and home to some of Egypt’s most renowned Islamic monuments.

The initiative aims to renovate heritage buildings and develop the area’s infrastructure in efforts to celebrate Egypt’s distinguished history.
