The Mosque of Sulayman Pasha al-Khadim, Cairo: 4 reviews and 12 photos
Commissioned by Muhammad Ali Pasha between 1830 and 1848, built in memory of Tusun Pasha, Muhammad Ali's oldest son, who died in 1816.
Built on the highest point of The Citadel, this Ottoman mosque is built by Yusuf Bushnak from Turkey and was patterned to the Mosque of Sultan Valide or the New Mosque in Eminonu, Istanbul.
This is the most visible mosque in Istanbul because of its elevation, and you can see it from afar or approaching Cairo.
For me, this is the most beautiful mosqueue both inside and out in the whole of Cairo.
Check the beautiful interior of the mosque on the next tip...gooooo.
Address: South-East Cairo
