“Banale design”

Unknown Soldier Memorial
Ranked #74 of 262 things to do in Cairo
Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2015

Yes the President was shot dead therefore, it was unpredicted, but the burial place did not necessarily have to be at the location of the shooting and a more memorable structure that best suited such personality should have been sought. The monument is banale nature and design. Does not commensurate with the greatness of the man buried below it.

Visiting the place is totally free and one of the big incidents happened in it (assassination of president El Sadat)
It was built during El Sadat period (70th) as a memorial place for the unknown soldiers died in October war.
