Helwan’s Japanese Garden
Sunday، 27 August 2017 - 01:03 PM
The Japanese Garden was designed and constructed in 1917 by Egyptian architect Zulfaqar Pasha who dedicated the garden to Sultan Hussein, ruler of Egypt at the time. Helwan was a relatively new city planned with a grid of streets as a winter getaway for Egypt’s notables. The city features natural springs for bathing and its location 40 meters above sea level means comfortable temperatures in all seasons.
The garden features a series of (fish) ponds, canals, hills and a diverse array of trees.
