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.


  1. I would so love to be able to visit Cairo. Several of my good friends were there a few years ago and I was unable to go with them. They brought back such wonderful stories and fabrics I was so envious. Great pictures.

  2. QMM, it is a pretty amazing place to visit. :o)
