The City of the Dead, also referred to as the northern cemetery, is an area home to a couple of funerary complexes. The city of the dead comprises of the Mosque of Qaitbey which was completed in 1474 AD, Mausoleum of Ibn Barquq, the Complex of Sultan Ashraf Barsbey and more. The irony of this place is that although it is called the city of the dead the place is pretty crowded.
The northern cemetery is basically a historic cemetery of Cairo that is now occupied by those people who couldn’t afford an expensive accommodation in the city.

City Of The Dead Reviews & Ratings
Even though it is a small mosque, it has a beautiful architecture, it moves wonderful sensations being inside; it is a wonderful experience seeing the image imprinted in the one-pound bills! Stained glass windows are amazingly detailed and beautiful, every single corner is ornamented. It is an excellent option to visit, recommendable.
A historical place that has a mequad brhind it and they made a great musical events with free entry
I attended a concert over there and it was awesome but the auditorium isn't too big
Major conservation efforts are being done to restore the place to its original glory
Great spiritual little place with old decorations & ornaments beautifully crafted alongside every inch of its walls ,ceilings ,doors, colored windows, dome & minaret .....its a bit hard to reach into it as it needs someone expert in these places ..the people are so friendly around it !
