Cairo was the next step for Edward William Lane's growing experience in Egypt. His exploration here served as an exploration of intense curiosity for widening horizons that seemed maybe rarely impossible. Just like his previous works wherein comparisons can be put through his series of dated notebooks and journals about each place, he went through for easy identification of his current place. Lane this time, in his trip to Cairo, was a bit different as his most formative experiences, his most crucial insights were obtained, and few sources have come to light. Aside from the curiosity of Lane in Cairo, its magnificent Islamic monuments made him more fascinated about Cairo, wherein the public buildings such as mosques gave him most interest.
