Qaliubiya Governorate

qaliubiya governorate

 

Qaliubiya is one of the greater Cairo region’s governorates. It lies to the east of the Nile at the very top of Egypt's Delta region. Shoubra el-Khaima is the capital city of Qaliubiya governorate. The region is central to Lower Egypt's agriculture and this economic value helps to make Qaliubiya the hub that links Lower Egypt with Upper Egypt.
