Deutsch: Ismaʿilia (, auch Ismaïlia) ist eine Stadt in Ägypten. Sie liegt beim Timsahsee, einem den Bitterseen vorgelagerten Salzsee, am Sueskanal, in der Mitte zwischen Port Said im Norden und Sues im Süden, etwa 120 km von Kairo entfernt. Sie wurde 1863 von Ferdinand de Lesseps mit dem Stadtnamen Timsah gegründet, schnell aber nach dem ägyptischen Khediven (Vizekönig) Ismail Pascha benannt.
English: Ismaïlia is a city in north-east Egypt, on the west bank of the Suez Canal, and is the capital of the Ismailia Governorate. It has a population (including surrounding rural areas) of approximately 750,000. It is located approximately half way between Port Said to the north and Suez to the south. The Canal widens at that point to include Timsah, one of the Bitter Lakes linked by the Canal. It was founded in 1863, during the construction of the Suez Canal, by Khedive Ismail the Magnificent, after whom the city is named. The head office of the Suez Canal Authority is located in Ismaïlia at the shore of Lake Timsah. It still has a large number of buildings dating from British and French involvement with the Canal. Most of these buildings are still used by Canal employees and officials.
