Матарийя both further Matariyya and further

To the northwest from Heliopolis some former villages have formed shabby suburbs балади. El-Zeytun (Olive) deserves a mention as a place where sultan Selim has overcome мамлюков in 1517 and where «Free officers» at first illegally gathered the 1950th. Adjoining quarter of Helmy has received the title from the 1st palace хедива, constructed in last eyelid. But to behold true sights, you should go still further, in Matariyyu.
The modern suburb Matariyya conducts the history since the Old kingdom and applies for acquaintance to the Kid the Christ. As the first al-Misallakh certificate to Medan show Senusert’s I 22-metre obelisk from a pink granite. It is one of pair of the obelisks erected here in honour of an anniversary holiday of the Pharaoh (about 1900). Snachalo Senusert’s obelisks stood about the temple Ra constructed by Amenemhat I, Senusert’s father and the founder of the XII dynasty. Other pair of local obelisks belonged to the governor of the XVIII dynasty Tutmosa III; both these a monument have been taken away by Romans to Alexandria, from where have gone to the Central park of New York and on the London pier.
Despite of relative "youth" of the mentioned obelisks, the area Matariyya essentially older, and the local cult of god of the sun ascends to the first dynasties.
