Midan El Hussein, Cairo: 3 reviews and 7 photos


Midan Hussein is the square in the middle of Islamic Cairo between Al-Azhar Mosque and the Mosque of Sayyidna al-Hussein. Ii is a popular meeting place for the locals. The square is fairly large lined up with some palm trees and on one end, towards Khan el Khalili market, wits small restaurants and cafes. If you grab some time to sit in one of them, this place can be the right one for soaking the flavor of Egyptian life.
