NULLTHE ALABASTER MOSQUE
The Muhammad Ali Mosque, which was built between 1830 and
1848 by the architect Youssef Bouchnak at the request of Muhammad Ali Pasha, is
considered the crown jewel for the Citadel of Salah al-Din in Cairo.
With its high dome, which you will see 52 meters away, and
its two eastern minarets, which rise to no less than 84 meters, you cannot help
but notice the majestic Muhammad Ali Mosque during your visit to Cairo.
All the internal and external walls of the mosque are
covered with a marble cladding that rises to 11 meters.
