Edward Louis Joseph Empain, known as Baron Empain, a Belgian industrialist who settled in Egypt after being fascinated by the architecture of its cities and decided to build a new city close to ancient Heliopolis, the Pharaonic capital that was a beacon for science, arts, and culture. Together with Boghos Nubar, son of Nubar Pacha Nubarian, an Egyptian of Armenian origin, they founded the Heliopolis Oases Company to build a city of a unique architectural style designed by the magnificent Belgian architect, Ernest Jaspar and the young French architect, Alexandre Marcel. The city was to include all social denominations and places of worship, such as the mosque that was inaugurated by Khedive Abbas Helmy II, the Basilica Church, and the Synagogue, in addition to business and commercial centers, service centers and recreational facilities, such as the Luna Park and the horse track, as well as several language schools. This city would not have prospered without being connected via a transport network of electrified railways that are well-known as the ‘Metro of Heliopolis’ lines, which connected Heliopolis with the squares of Cairo, such as Ataba and Abbasia Squares, and linked between the inner neighborhoods of Heliopolis to let it truly become the ‘City of the Sun’. Thus, Baron Empain decided to settle in his palace, in which he built the model of the Hindu temples and combined the Indian and Cambodian styles, and his wish was granted to be buried in Egypt beneath the altar of the Basilica Church. The Culturama of Heliopolis, the City of the Sun, is a main part of the permanent museum display at the Baron Palace Museum, which was inaugurated by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, on 29 June 2020.
