Roda Island (or Rawdah Island, Arabic: جزيرة الروضة‎, Jazīrat ar-Rawdah  [ɡɪˈziːɾɪt eɾˈɾoːdɑ]) is an island located on the Nile in central Cairo.[1]

Historically, the mamluks of Bahri dynasty originally settled on the Roda Island at the castle of Al-Rodah, which was built by the Ayyubid Sultan as-Salih Ayyub in order to house his mamluks.[2] The name of the dynasty, "Bahriyya", means 'of the river', referring to their original settlement on the island on the Nile River.

The El-Manial district and the Manial Palace and Museum and gardens are located on the island. It is west of historic Old Cairo, over a small branch of the Nile. The island has one of the oldest Islamic buildings in Egypt, the Nilometer, in the neighbourhood of the Manasterly Palace on its southern tip.[1]
