In this beautiful tour of words and deeds, history and architecture are elegantly braided together. Travel back in time to the splendid scents, sights and sounds of historic Cairo, the fabled bridge between ancient Egypt and modern Egypt. This is the story of the rise and fall of the Islamic Empire.

In this tour, I shall prove that there exists an architectural historian technique whereby history can be interpreted through architecture. Behold! Seddik technique is unique.

"Travel. Set out and head for pastures new. Life tastes richer when you've rode warm feet. No water that stagnates is fit to drink, for only that which flows is truly sweet ...." - Ibn Battuta

"behind gates of glory and façades of fame lie unique stories of rise and fall that teach us to never give in, in nothing great or small, in the march of history against the juggernaut of time. When domes dominate a relief of belief reveals the architecture of history in the history of architecture through abodes beyond the boundaries of death.

The minarets dot the I's and cross the T's of architecture, furnishing a Rosetta Stone to untangle the web of history. The palaces of startling elegance provide visual biographies highlighting the salience of sailing in the sea of history and granting us a passport to the past.
