Tahrir Square in Cairo

Tahrir Square is the largest field in Cairo, Egypt, at the beginning of its establishment it was named after Ismailia Square, after Khedive Ismail, then the name changed to "Tahrir Square"; it was related to liberation from colonialism in the 1919 revolution and then the name was officially established in the July 23 Revolution in 1952.

The field simulates the Charles de Gaulle square, which houses the Arc de Triumph in the French capital, Paris.

Khedive Ismail was fond of the French capital Paris and even wanted to plan Cairo along the lines of Paris and create a field similar to the Champs-Elysées Square. Indeed, the Khedive Cairo, whose streets converge on a large square, was named the Ismailia Square about Khedive Ismail, whose name later became Tahrir Square.

Tahrir Square symbolized the freedom and steadfastness of the people when it witnessed several confrontations between protesters and the security forces, including the events of the 1919 revolution and the 1935 demonstrations against the English occupation and the bread revolution on January 18 and 19 of 1977, including the revolution of January 25 in 2011, and that revolution ended with the overthrow of the regime The ruler of President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak, who has become a symbol of the demonstrators, their steadfastness, and their freedom.

Millions of Egyptians gathered in Tahrir Square on January 28, 2011, calling for the removal of former President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak from the Presidency of the Republic and taking the headquarters of their revolution until the Vice President announced in an official statement that the President abandoned his post on Friday evening, February 11, 2011, where the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces took over management The country's affairs temporarily for a period of six months. It is worth noting that after Mubarak stepped down, the protesters cleaned and staged a sit-in in the field until the overthrow of the government of Ahmed Shafiq on March 3, 2011.

Tahrir Square is now completely renovated with the placement of one of the masterpieces of ancient Egyptian architecture from Luxor city, an obelisk, and 4 sphinx statues from the avenue of sphinxes which connects the passageway between Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple in Luxor, the cost of the renovation is huge despite the speed of finishing all the works in less than one year.
