Kafr El Sheikh (Egyptian Arabic: كَفرُ الشَّيْخ pronounced [kɑfɾ eʃˈʃeːx]) is an Egyptian city and the capital of Kafr El Sheikh Governorate, Egypt, about 134 km north of Cairo, in the Nile Delta of lower Egypt. As of November 2006, the town had a population of around 500,000.[1]

Kafr El Sheikh was earlier known as Duminqun (Arabic: دُمِيْنقُون), but was officially named Fuadiyah or Fouadiyah (Arabic: فُؤادِيَّة) in honour of King Fuad I of Egypt. After the 1952 Revolution and the subsequent abolition of the monarchy, the governorate took the name of its capital city Kafr El Sheikh. This name, adopted in 1955, means "the village of the chief".[2][3][4] In 2006 the University of Kafr El Sheikh was established.

Kafr El Sheikh is responsible for more than 40% of the total sea food production in Egypt.
