This is a 1001 night mosque and one of the hidden treasures of Cairo. This is definitely a 'must see' in Cairo.

oldest mosque in Caïro. During my visit there where virtually no people there. Must see and ask if you can climb a minaret for a beautiful overview of the city.

Its one of the biggest mosques in Old Cairo. This mosque as compared to others is built on a height. Try to visit if possible with a guide.
My favorite mosque in town. The second oldest, and by far largest. Built by Abbasside (9th cent.). empty and very moving for old stones amateurs. Open 9-16.
The overall citadel on its lofty perch above Cairo streets is impressive. There are three mosques to visit, of which this is one. Not as impressive as the Mohammed Ali mosque, this being smaller and less well decorated.
