23/50.- old Cairo, Saint George Church
Saint George Church is a Greek
orthodox temple built at the beginning of the 20th century.
There used to be another church dedicated to Mar Girgis (Saint
George in Arabic) in this district, but it is not here any more.
Close to this church is Saint
George's Convent, where devotees can practise the chain
ritual. This ritual recalls Saint George's persecutions.
