My dad, his Egyptian friend Ali, and I decided to pass by Muhammed Ali Mosque while we were in Cairo last November.
Its a beautiful Ottoman mosque commissioned by Muhammed Ali Pasha -in memory of his son Tusun Pasha- between 1830 and 1848.
Thats the courtyard
And alabaster covered courtyard.
I also snapped few pics from the inside… the chandelier – here you can see the central dome which is surrounded by other domes
You can find more info here!
Its a place not to be missed… specially if you wanna go and admire the architecture of the Ottomans!
Here is a picture from the top of Sultan Hassan and AlRifaie Mosques, which I will be posting pictures about tomorrow
And here are different pictures I took while out of Muhammed Ali Mosque of Cairo
