this mosque shows one of the beautiful architectural masterpieces. though less well maintained, but inside the air was cool. this mosque can be visited without having to pay. I suggest to be one of the list of attractions that must be visited when in Cairo

This was a good mosque to visit. No extra policing of clothing, with no renovations at the moment. The 3 midrabs on the qibla wall are in great condition, and it was clean. The dikka was in nice shape. It's a working mosque and lots...More

I am sincerely happy this was included on our tour of Egypt, Jordan, and Israel. It gave me a glimpse into the Muslim religion. I came to the mosque prepared to cover up with a shawl. In its simplicity, it is beautiful. As we departed,...More

A great historical mosque and I believe it was the first mosque in Egypt. It has become a little neglected in some areas and could do with more care and attention/redecoration. There is a certain magic about this historical place.

The frist mosque built in the Africa continent. The existing building still intact but not properly maintained. Too bad.

This is my first visit to a Mosque. It's huge and very spiritual, it was renovated and rebuilt many times through the history. A must visit to the whole religious complex when in Cairo.
