Cairo had been set aside as little more than a fortress beside the Nile , guarding a crossing point on the route between the ancient Egyptian cities of Heliopoli and Memphis . When Arab general Amr Ibn al-Ass set up camp, he built a capital nearby, the future foundation of Cairo .  

The ancient part of Cairo city contains a bastion Egyptian Christianity, Coptic Cairo, and Ben Ezra Synagogue.  It is the oldest synagogue in Egypt . It has been heavily restored.  

The Hanging Church is the most beautiful of Cairo ís churches.  It has an ornately decorated interior consisting of three barrel-vaulted, wooden roofed aisles, ivory inlaid screens and a finely carved marble pulpit.
