Probably this was the only place we liked in Citadel. The roof was a piece of art and Islamic culture. Although entire Citadel was very inconvenient and not worth visiting.

This is the most amazing place, stunning buildings and stone decorations. So peaceful inside the temple. This is a must visit if you are going to Cairo and one of the oldest mosques in the country.
A must see in Cairo, its so massive and beautiful, get a local guide to explain this place to you and you will fall in love with it as well. You need to purchase shoe covers , or just remove your shoes before you enter the mosque. Its breathtaking, all of it. No photos will ever do it justice. Make sure this place is on your list of must do's!
