Nice building, sitauted in one of the better quarters of Cairo. But if you have been in India, no need to go there. There is not much to see and getting there is difficult due to traffic.

While travelling to Cairo downtown you'll see it on your left, it captures your attention and for the first time visitor is the promise of the many bit decadent wonders expecting him/her

You can't actually visit or get up close at all. There's a giant chain link fence with a guard station that surrounds it. We tried to see if there was any way that we could get closer, but no. You have to get permission in advance from the government. There were people using it as a backdrop for a photo... More

Built by Baron Impan as his residence, the palace has been abandoned for years and surrounded by rumours claiming that it has been haunted since then.

The site is currently closed so I wouldn't come all the way to Heliopolis to see it but if you're in the area, it's a nice 20-30 minute stop to see a very unique building. For a bird's eye view, have lunch at the Hotel Baron next door. The Baroness Hotel may also allow you to view the site from... More

Now it is closed to public but you can go and have an out tour to have a look, it deserve it you can stop over to see the building/ take photos while you are on the way to the airport. I can imagine that it would be nice and worth the visit when/if it is open to pubic

When looking to this marvelous palace, you can imagine how beautiful was Cairo in the past times, the place needs much renovations and care.
