This is a magnificent structure. This place is truly unique. I usually like to visit this Mosque every once in a while just to admire the scale and beauty of the architecture. This building is really and honestly the single best Islamic Madrasa and Mosque in Egypt Fully intact. I'd recommend visiting it very much as It truly is a work of art.

What a giant building is this Mosque ! You shouldn't miss to visit whenever you are visiting Cairo, It is build to symbolize the Islamic Civilization at its best and most wealthy ages. you will be far touched by its great architecture, soaring columns, embellished decorations, eminent minarets and giant walls where the thickness of the walls is reaching one & half meters .
It was really established lavishly and in a rather extravagance way!!

Was my first mosque. Beautiful architecture, but the guys outside were kind of annoying. Didn't want a "guide" but gave him the equivalent of $3 in bakeesh.
