We found this mosque, which we were informed by our guide was an 'active' mosque to be very beautiful and imposing in its architecture as well as very tranquil and peaceful. We spent a lot more time here than we thought we would and I was lucky enough to be able to climb the minaret which, I am informed, is the only one in Cairo with an external staircase. Fantastic views over Cairo and well worth the climb (legs of jelly from the climb to Saqqara pyramid the day before).
Enjoy your time in this beautiful place.
