The Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan is one of Cairo’s finest examples of the ancient Mamluk architecture in the city. The holy shrine is not only a gorgeous structure but also a peaceful place to spend some time at. The interiors of the mosque are commendable too. The construction of the mosque was completed in two halves due to misfortune and uncertainties. Sultan Hassan who first undertook the building of the mosque was killed about 2 years before the mosque was completed. However, the mosque was finally completed one of his functionaries named Bashir Al Gamdar. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Cairo itinerary 4 days.

I couldn't believe it until I saw it. I agree with other commenters that this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Islamic style in the world. The mosque(s) are simply huge! The vaulted ceilings are decorated with fine wood and stone word, including elegant inscriptions from the Qur'an. Highly recommended to visit! Staff very friendly and not too fussy about female clothing. Costs 80LE for entry.
One of amazing mosques all over the world. If you plan to visit it (for non-egyptian only ) you need to pay "80 egp" if you adult about "40 egp" if you a student Note these prices are updated until my visit in March 2019. I think you will enjoy it
The place more enigmatic ever, I love each corner, when you listen the call to pray is very arminius 😍😍
This building is the best Islamic style building in the world. It was designed and engineered very well. This mosque deserve to visit and stay long time inside it. You will smell history there. It is better to read about the history of this mosque before visiting it. That will let you know better and value the things you see. Parking is hard at that area.
A fantastic place that I am suggesting it for any one to visit
