The Nile was not just a means for transportation, it was the source of a plethora of other tangibles as well.This was known as al-Askar (the city of sections, or cantonments) as it was laid out like a military camp.A rebellion in 869 by Ahmad ibn Tulun led to the abandonment of Al Askar and the building of another settlement, which became the seat of government.Egypt's capital was permanently moved to Cairo, which was eventually expanded to include the ruins of Fustat and the previous capitals of al-Askar and al-Qatta'i.

As al Qahira expanded these earlier settlements were encompassed, and have since become part of the city of Cairo as it expanded and spread; they are now collectively known as "Old Cairo".Cairo, like many other megacities, suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic.
