Luxor Times Magazine

I hadn't realized that Luxor Times is a printed and published magazine for sale in Luxor - I saw a pile of current and back issues at Gaddis, in front of the Winter Palace.

Lately rumours has been talking about relocating the Hospital of psychiatric and neurological or as it is known to local people as the Yellow Palace (The mental rehab) for the sake of investment projects as it is located in a busy area of Abbasia,Cairo. Dr. Zahi Hawass formed a committee from specialists in Islamic and modern architecture which decided that the building of a great historical importance.

Farouk Hosni, minister of culture, said that the committee decided to register the hospital as an Islamic monument and its report will have to be approved by the permanent committee on its next meeting.
