Great Mosque ...Great location

One of the ancient mosques in Alexandria with a nice location near the sea in Bahri district (west of Alexandria). I do recommend this place for every one.

It is an ordinary mosque, but it is famous there and people swear by the name of this mosque. Would be interesting to know the story behind it.

It is one of the most famous historic buildings in Alexandria. In Ramadan you can't walk freely there because of the crowded mosque during praying.
