Midan Tahrir (Mansheiyya)

Midan Tahrir or Midan Mansheiyya was laid out in 1830 as the centrepiece of Mohammed Ali's new Alexandria. The Alexandria's souq district (or market area) is just beside it.

We had a walk around Alexandria at night. Here was Midan Tahrir. There were a few fine architecture around Midan Tahrir, and souq that sells a lot of things. We nearly got lost when tried to find here, this was the first scare we encountered in Alexandria.

Tip: Prepare a good map. :)
