Guide to a Perfect trip in Egypt!
The Manial Palace is believed to have been constructed for Prince Mohamed Ali between 1899 to 1929. Ali was the first cousin of Egypt's King Farouk and younger brother of Khedive Abbas II Hilmi. It is built in the Art Nouveau architectural style and hosts a wonderful museum enjoyed by many tourists each year.
The museum has six main buildings including a museum displaying Farouk's hunting awards and Prince Ali's mementos and belongings. In addition one can view a number of old artifacts such as clothing items, jewelry, crafts and old manuscripts, including a magnificent silver dining set and a table made of elephant ears. There are also lovely gardens surrounding the museum that tourists love to visit.
There is also a hotel called the Meridian hotel located on the historical grounds of the museum.
