Tour to Cairo Tower

During the reign of the former Egyptian president Jamal Abd ُEl Nasser Cairo tower built.

Egyptians Build Cairo tower in the late 60th and it cost 6 million pounds at the time.

This sum of money was given to the Egyptian government by the USA to stop the Egyptians from supporting the Algerian uprising against the French occupation.

This was why the Cairo Tower had two names:

  • The American name “the fork in the back of Nasser”.
  • The Egyptian name “stopping Roosevelt”.

But the six million pounds didn’t affect the Egyptian attitude towards supporting other Arab nations.

Egyptِِِِ although needed that money immensely to rebuild its infrastructure.

Also, Nasser insisted on building  Cairo Tower to stand as a clear everlasting proof of the union and alliance Egypt has with the Arab world.

However, there is a nice revolving restaurant at the top of the tower.

Also, there is a cafe that offers all kinds of drinks and light snacks.

Cairo Tower is considered an architectural gem and they build it in the shape of the most important plant in the life of the ancient Egyptians, the lotus.
