“Lovely Mosque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Fabulous architecture. Magnificent interior. Dress respectfully, cover shoulders and knees . Take a plastic bag or something to put your shoes in and a scarf to cover you head if you are female. Fabulous panoramic views across Cairo.

It was a beautiful experience to see the mosque. No shoes allowed on the inside floor. The outside panoramic view of the city was beautiful.

Very interesting to see what people could build years ago.
Like all the lights inside the mosque also the location was great.
