Audiobooks Genres



Although Cairo is most famous for the ancient Egyptian pyramids of Giza, located at its outskirts, the city as we know it today dates back only to 969. Since then, numerous rulers of different Muslim dynasties built fortifications, mosques and other buildings that earned Cairo the name "city of a thousand minarets".
In this book, Stanley Lane-Poole traces the history of Cairo from the early Muslim period to the British Invasion of 1882. While doing so, he gives vivid descriptions of many of the mediaeval buildings that shape Cairo's cityscape to this day. (Summary by Availle) Proof listeners: SaraHale and MrsHand
