Aisha Fahmy Palace – Ancient palace

This historic gem located in Zamalek area was built by the Egyptian army chief of King Fouad I, Fahmy ben Ali bacha Fahmy for his daughter Princess Aisha. It was closed for nearly a decade and a half for development then registered as an archaeological building in 2010 and opened again in 2017 to become a complex for arts that is open to visitors only when there is a new exhibition.

It showcases many kinds of exhibitions from time to time, like a textile exhibition, paintings of fine art and others. The palace has two floors: the first floor has many rooms used for exhibitions while the second floor has many rooms like the Japanese room that were given to Princess Aisha as a gift and designed especially for her —  some of the words and Japanese pictures were engraved on the walls of the room. Also there are statues painted in golden.

In the same floor I like her amazing dressing room, the walls adorned with European decoration and some paintings made of silk and linen.
