This lush, green oasis is a place of beauty and tranquillity, offering visitors an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This spectacular display features thousands of colourful lights that dance across the sky, creating an enchanting atmosphere that will mesmerise you. The show is accompanied by traditional Egyptian music, which adds to its magical charm.
Al-Azhar Park also offers plenty for children to do with its playgrounds, climbing frames and swings, providing hours of fun for little ones.
