One of the most famous, if not - the - most famous landmark in Heliopolis. Too bad, you cannot visit the inside, just admire the exterior euro-indi architecture and take pictures for good memory

The effort exerted verses the rewards be it visual spiritual is not worth it, the traffic, pollution outweighs any perceived warm glow some website may tell you ,go and look at the plastic pollution on the Nile you will feel better.
