"Al-Ghouriyya mosque: Sights, sounds and smells" Hmam Al Ghoria Mosque Tip by dutchboycalledjan
Hmam Al Ghoria Mosque, Cairo: 4 reviews and 17 photos
We've climbed the minaret of the Al-Ghouriyya mosque, just after sun set and saw the lights coming up over Ca´ro: not only the sights and sounds were beautiful but also the smells, coming from the spice shops at its feet, were fantatstic. The inside of the Mamluk mosque (1505) is also very nice - nice view form the balcony - as is the view from the top: you can look inside the mosque. The near by mausoleum is closed and being restaured. There were also some spaces for schools (madrassa's). After some talk, we agreed on paying 20 pounds per person and there was somebody who showed us around. He had a basic understanding of English.
Address: Al-Azhar and Al-Muizz li-Din Allah
Directions: Near the foot bridge over al-Azhar, on the other side lays Khan al-Khalili.
