  Mosque and Madrassa Sultan Hassan
by PierreZA

I first saw this mosque, with it's neighbour, from the Citadel. It is quite big and a very impressive building.
On entrance, a dark passage leads tho the big courtyard, with four recesses. They are arched, and were the actual areas where Islam were taught.
There are lamps hanging from the very high roof areas.
The inside of the mosque is also very impressive.
You will pay an entrance fee at the gate, which is for both mosques.

Address: El-Soultan Hasan, Cairo Governorate
Directions: Just below the Citadel.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
