The Mohammed Ali Mosque 3
Before entering the mosque, in fact before stepping into its courtyard, you should take off your shoes and carry them in your hands.

The inside of the Mosque is as impressive as the outside. Observe and admire the dome and Arabic inscriptions, take a look at the place from which an imam leads his prayers...

We also saw the Mohammed Ali mosque that appears on the Egyptian pound. It is HUGE. We also visited the old Aqueducts and the City of the Dead.
