The Citadel Mosque in Cairo
The Citadel Mosque is a really neat place to visit when one comes to Cairo. It is beautiful from the inside out.
One of Cairo's most popular tourist attractions is the Citadel which houses a number of museums, ancient mosques and other sites, located on a spur of limestone that had been detached from its parent Moqattam Hills by quarrying. The Citadel is one of the world's greatest monuments to medieval warfare, as well as a highly visible landmark on Cairo's eastern skyline.
