The Agha Khan’s tomb in Aswan
Our friends and sponsors CIB’s 2016 Annual Report highlights some of the nation’s most breathtaking tourism spots, from pristine beaches to adventure tourism and cultural heritage sites. All images in the report were shot by Zeina Abaza at Inktank Communications, which has produced the bank’s annual report for the past eight years.
For the coming month, this Egypt Holiday Photo of the Day section will feature some of our favorite images from the report. With plenty of holidays coming up before and after Ramadan (and with the EGP where it is against the greenback) we encourage everyone to ask whether a holiday here at home might not be worth considering.

Today’s image is of the Agha Khan’s tomb in Aswan. Agha Khan was the influential leader of the Ismaili sect. He liked to spend his winters in Aswan for his health and was buried there in an elegant tomb after his death in 1957.
