Montazah Palace Lighthouse, Alexandria, Egypt

This lighthouse, although not believed to be an official aid to navigation, is believed to have been built by King Farouk I on a small islet in front of his palace in Alexandria, Egypt (Montazah Palace). It appears that he tried to creat a small replica of the orignal Pharos Lighthouse. It is visible from the palace grounds and a nearby hotel and is adjacent to a yacht harbour. Photo was taken in May 2008.
