A really great example of medieval Mosque architecture. Even on the hottest of days (it was 47C when we visited) the entrance was very cool, through engineered channeling of air. A beautiful inner courtyard and a wonderful praying area. The inner sanctum houses the tomb...More

The Sultan Hassan Mosque is an impressive and stately example of early Islamic architecture. Its vast dimensions lend themselves to a contemplative atmosphere, and the beauty of its design and furnishings is quite impressive.
