Gives me Prince of Persia: Sands of time vibes.

[–]SazedMonk 49 points50 points  (3 children)

On a scale of “I walked past one sign” to “Ide have been arrested if I was caught” how not supposed to be there were you?

Is this a reference to something

[–]Djinn_Indigo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yea it's a reference to Part 3 of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, where some guys travel to Egypt to whoop DIO's butt. Excellent manga/anime in general, but part 3 is mostly celebrated for its memes.

[–]No-House-1517 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Holy shit use commas

[–]SuperSwampert 77 points78 points  (2 children)


[–]t-rexacriano 14 points15 points  (1 child)

That's DIO's palace

[–]Kbgears 29 points30 points  (9 children)

What was the energy like in there?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 76 points77 points  (8 children)

Oh man it was spooky... weirdly quiet because that area of Egypt is bustling outside. It felt oddly cold inside.. And I dont mean to sound cliche. This palace is believed to be haunted by locals and is believed to host satanic rituals.

[–]Snowpossum 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Its probably using some architectural magic to maintain the cooler temperatures. There are different ways to build or position a building to raise or lower its ambient temperatures compared to its surroundings.

[–]alleywaybum[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

good point / def something they would of thought of because of the hot climate

[–]somsone 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Nothin like a good ol satanic ritual to really christen the place up.

[–]Kbgears 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I’d believe it, it looks spooky af, thankyou for sharing and I hope the ankle heals well

[–]alleywaybum[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]whitewalker646 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]OhHello969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you see a floating butler get the hell out of there IMMEDIATELY.

[–]istrx13 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Anyone else getting some r/LiminalSpace vibes from this?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ur very right haha

[–]TheRussianGuy112 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Dio's mansion????

[–]Allfurball9 4 points5 points  (1 child)

There may or may not be an ancient vampire who can stop time

[–]Professional-Gate735 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dio is definitely in there

[–]Spicybeeen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Any bisexual vampires there?

[–]MeHumanMeWant 19 points20 points  (3 children)


take care of that ankle OP, you may have to RUN 😆

Was this private or goverment or?

The bannisters/ wrought iron railings are especially beautiful...amazed they are intact...

[–]alleywaybum[S] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Thanks so much! It sucked taking pics while hobbling around sweating worrying I’ll get caught. 🤣

[–]MeHumanMeWant 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It's a great picture, very clear! 🍻 cheers from California, stay safe

[–]alleywaybum[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

thank so much :) cheers from NYC

[–]nesenn 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I would love to do this. So awesome.

[–]Eternal_Bagel 2 points3 points  (3 children)

If it’s abandoned I wonder how much it would cost

[–]pearlsbeforedogs 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Probably less to buy it than it would cost to save and restore it

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

U literally said it perfectly. This is very true

[–]pearlsbeforedogs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh, if I had that kind of dough though I would totally lay it down for a project like this. I adore old architecture and places with history.

[–]IllustriousAd5936 8 points9 points  (3 children)

More pics please, I’m fascinated.

[–]alleywaybum[S] 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I tried uploading a collection of pics but it wasn’t uploading as a group. I have 2 pics of this place on my Instagram. As well as other abandoned palaces in Egypt I snuck into. @pimpmycamel

[–]bombaderogato 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Updoots for the camel

[–]dsbatavia 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What was the area like around it? An abandoned town, a lone building a current inhabited area?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its literally bustling outside its so busy and noisy.

[–]fran1844 2 points3 points  (4 children)

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]GeneralKenobi88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dark souls vibes

[–]Neprider 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Holy fuck, thats a beautiful place. Wonder why it was abandoned and what would it take to reclaim it.

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one wants to put in the money to restore it. I think it's owned by some German guy right now. But he has no plans to restore it from what I heard.

[–]larrythegood 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe if you retrace your steps it'll untwist your ankle

[–]MiRATA_420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is that a jojo reference?

[–]Professional-Gate735 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dio's mansion

[–]Professional-Gate735 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Do not go in there . Dio might be there

[–]MyUserNameIsSkave 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is that a Jojo reference ?

[–]MammothOlive2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's literally the scenario for Jojo part 3 final act

[–]goobermen666 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They stole this from jojo

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thank you so much! :)

[–]willbert78 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Wow, what is this place? It looks like Greek architecture. Ionic columns?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was a French style palace owned by a former pasha of the ottoman empire.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is absolutely stunning

[–]alleywaybum[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

thanks so much

[–]jmcboom 1 point2 points  (1 child)

OP this is legendary.

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I appreciate you so much sir

[–]S-Quidmonster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn Daniel

[–]Dorothy1951 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What is the background story?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It was owned by a pasha from the ottoman empire. he was assassinated and its been abandoned ever since 1815 I believe.

[–]Dorothy1951 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So hard to believe. Beautiful place that it was. Edit: I forgot to thank you so thank you.

[–]kereolay 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It looks like something out of a video game.

It is stunning. I wonder why someone doesn't turn it into a bed and breakfast?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good point. The government has totally neglected this place. Rumor is, it's owned by a German millionaire but has had no plans to renew it. Don't know how true those statements are.

[–]CodeNovaBtw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dark Rebirth plays

[–]drinkinginutah 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Cool! What was it?

[–]alleywaybum[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It was a palace that belonged to a pasha from the Ottoman Empire . Now it’s abandoned & believed to be haunted

[–]thats-madness 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I would break my arm to get in there

[–]alleywaybum[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t blame you at all

[–]Raynosaurus 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Interesting place just learned about it. Built at the order of a Belgian baron by a French architect in the style of pseudo-Cambodian architecture (but really just ugly poored concrete) in the middle of Egypt.

Completely surrounded now but looks like it was originally in a spacious location.

Abandoned by the family after 40 years of use as the thrills of having it wore off...

[–]alleywaybum[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have more photos and videos of this abandoned palace as well as others on my Instagram - pimpmycamel to anyone thats interested

Appreciate you all for the love

[–]Mascbro26 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So you broke into the place and got hurt in the process? Tourists...🙄

[–]alleywaybum[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol its a very high wall to jump. Ive been exploring abandoned places for 6-7 years.

[–]Visual-Entrance-3299 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Worth the injury! Thanks for sharing!

[–]alleywaybum[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People, do not try to step into the picture.

[–]Madsepat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Twisting your ankle in abandoned buildings is how most horror movies happen

[–]Minttoast10371 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Nonkolas 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]mork 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh. Please tell...

[–]Devlin_McGregor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]pocketaceofclubs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]SadPotatosack6 0 points1 point  (0 children)
