one of the best monuments I visited. one of the oldest if not the oldest mosque in Cairo. love how spacious is. we went on Saturday morning and it was completely empty which is great. cause you can have full appreciation of the building. if you are in Cairo you should pay thjs place a visit
One of my favourite mosque in Cairo. It's so old, large and unique. We can go up and see the city from the top. But, we should pay to go up and have limit time. Good moment to go is when the sunset will be happened. It's amazing scenery. From the top, we can see the roof of mosque and mosque of Muhammad Ali. Although it's little bit dangerous on the top but it's worth it. Just br careful! Unfortunately, the mosque can't use for pray.
A great architecture for one of the most unique mosques in all the world. Identified with its wide courtyard and the unique style of its manaret. Photos taken by myself.
A historical mosque with a wide courtyard & nice architecture. It is relatively huge compared to other similarly-shaped mosques in Cairo. It is popularly known for its spiral minaret at one side of the courtyard (which is also depicted on the 5 Egyptian Pound note). Sometimes if you’re lucky, you can go up the minaret & see the beautiful view of Cairo. Being in the middle of the slums area, the location is quite hard to reach due to narrow streets, and not that easy to park your vehicle outside too. It is not that well-maintained, which made it looked more seasoned & authentic. Prayers are routinely performed here, but the Jumaah prayers aren’t. And the museum complex nearby is quite interesting to see.
It's amazing mosque For both history and architecture lovers .. this place takes you in a short journey to another different ages .. make you feel with inner peace
