Putting aside its history, the layout and architecture of the memorial is beautiful. From afar it looks like a pyramid however this isnt the kind of pyramid the ancient Egyptians built to commemorate their dead. Makes me wish the rest of Egypt could be this clean and shiny. Decorated guards stand watch and often flowers are seen at the bright red carpet that leads up to the monument.

The memorial stands on the street where the military parade was held. At one of these parades, president Sadat was assassinated just opposite this memorial.

This is a rare open space with significance. At night it has a very different look to the daytime and appears more like a pyramid. Worth a stop on your way past if you are visiting Nasr City.

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.
