It is located bang outside the entrance of the Khan El Khalili market. my muslim friends went inside and liked it. But when it comes to mosques in terms of design and beauty then there are far better ones.

The place houses the famous Hussein mosque, which is a popular place to visit. The problem I that it is in the center of Cairo and it is not properly planned. You have to take care while walking around.

It is called Midan Al Hussein due to the famous Al Hussein mosque in this area that has KHAN AL KHALILI famous Bazar, I suggest you go there with a tour company because it is crowded and hard to go to by yourself

Been there with my family. inside you can see people praying. My Aunt went to the women's side and said the Shia women were praying , and cried while hugging the silvery cage. it was an intense moment.
