Moustafa Kamel Tombs

(2)

Mostafa Kamel tombs are located in the El-Moaskar El-Romani Street, in Rushdie Zone. The graveyard includes 4 subterranean rock-cut tombs of a relative good condition and beautiful depictions.  They date back to the second century BC “the Ptolemaic era", all of which are in excellent condition and beautifully decorated.

The graveyard was named after Mostafa Kamel, one of Egypt's greatest twentieth century political legends. His most famous phrase is, "If I was not born as an Egyptian, Iwould love to be an Egyptian."

Mustafa Kamel Necropolis is characterised by its bright colours and relief inscriptions illustrating the everyday life of the dead as well as their religious beliefs.
