A must visit when in Cairo! The mosque is gorgeous and significant in Egyptian history and the view of Cairo from the grounds is absolutely magnificent. If you're lucky and it's a clear day, you can see the great pyramids of Giza AND the pyramids of Sakkara and Dashur.

not really maintained by the government, and IMHO it really should be maintained, it's almost the same mosque as in Istanbul

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.
