The structure is very beautiful, inside there is only one room and only 4 pillars that support a set of domes. At the entrance to the right is the tomb of Muhammad Ali. The mosque is entirely clad in alabaster. Don't miss it
Beautiful mosque that is still used for prayers. The gardens and white marbled areas outside the mosque are also quite stunning. Like all the other areas of the citidel, its not touristy and very quiet. A good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cairo.
a piece of architect in Cairo. you feel like you were transported to Istanbul. the position, the ceiling and the manbars are great, but the place overall can be cleaner and the mosque needs more care from the authorities.
