The Aga Khan is the hereditary Imam (leader) of the Nisari Ismailis. The Aga Khans mausoleum overlooks the Nile River, near Aswan.. You can find it without too much bother. It's interesting, without being spectacular.

We were cruising by boat on the Nile river and it was a pleasant surprise to see a Mausoleum in the desert on the bank of river Nile! A simplistic monument in a stark background. The Mausoleum of the Late Aga Khan.
