“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

The mosque was breath taking so beautiful, the art and workmanship was unbelieveable; you were given a bag to put your shoes in and the men had to wear a hat; ladies had to cover up neck, arms, legs, women and men pray separate. I liked that we were allow to see what a mosque look like and learn a little of their belief. We seen the Tomb of Mohamed Ali.
An over all good time.

“Mosque Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

As a christian, it is interesting to go inside a mosque and find the spartan amenities with just carpets covering the floor. Our guide Mohamed pointed where the faithful has to face during prayer that is towards Mecca.

“A Magical Place in The Pearl of The Mediteranean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is a beautiful mosque and has a fascinating history. A tour guide will complete the visit because you must always remember this is a Mosque and people go here to pray!!! Ladies, please cover up, including your head when entering. The serenity and beauty of the place leaves me feeling humbled but relaxed each time I have been.
