    the courtyard

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

    the interior

    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...

    Exquisite carving

    In the centre of the great courtyard is this fountain where people wash their feet and leave their shoes

    The Courtyard

    This wonderful courtyard makes you feel so small and the slabs in the marble floor are freezing on stockinged feet first thing in the morning

    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.
