This is one of the biggest mosques in the world. The architecture (with lots of domes)and interior decorations are interesting,but the huge entrance is amazing. It is in a great state of repair, as it is a working mosque.

The Greatest Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan is one of the greatest Islamic monuments in the world. Both the architecture, facades, minarets and the interiors are amazing. The monumental entrance is remarkable.

This mosque is very close to the Citadel. It is one of the most beautiful mosques of Cairo with magnificant entrance. There are four madrassas inside, but they were closed when we visited the mosque. Quranic verses are engraved on the walls of the mosque.
