- Visiting the southern section of Islamic Cairo offers some Cairo’s largest Islamic monuments.
*Construction of Cairo’s Citadel began under the Ayyub general Saladin (Salah Al-Den) in the 12th century. Today the Citadel offers breathtaking views to the city and several museums dedicated to Egypt’s police and Military.
There are three notable mosques inside the walls: Al-Nasir Muhammed Mosque, Suleiman Pasha Mosque, and Muhammed Ali’s Alabaster Mosque.
*Below the Citadel, there is the massive Sultan Hassan Mosque, built by a 14th century sultan of the same name. This huge mosque is built as a madrassa (religious school) and displays some of the most impressive architectural decoration in any mosque in the city.
*Ibn Tulun Mosque is within walking distance of both the Citadel and Sultan Hassan.
Dedicated in 872 AD, it is the oldest mosque Cairo and the larges by land area. It is a truly impressive space, owing its unique Samarran architect style to the fact that it was built when Egypt’s rulers were from Iraq. There is an additional Gayer-Anderson Museum attached to its outer walls. The proximity of the Citadel and Sultan Hassan Mosque to Ibn Tulun makes them easy sights to combine into a day of touring.

free-trip-tag Day 3


- Breakfast at Hotel.
- Visiting the Fatimid Cairo, starting with Al-Muizz Al-Deen street, named for the first Fatimid Caliph in Egypt, was built as the main street through the Fatimid's grand city and while much of the Fatimid capital was destroyed when subsequent Sunni Caliphates regained control of the city, Muizz street retained its importance. Many of the places, mosques, and monuments of the Ayyubid, mamluk and Ottoman rulers that controlled Egypt After the Fatimid's continued to be built along this street through the center of the city. Today, Al-Muizz Street still displays the greatest density of significant Islamic monuments anywhere in the world to this day.
- The space along Al-Muizz Street has been valuable real estate since the construction of Islamic Cairo in the 10th century because it was the central avenue of the city and the location of the city’s most important buildings. Palaces, mosques, and the mausoleums of the wealthiest rulers of Cairo were all constructed in the prized space along this central avenue. The Darb Al-Asfar (the Yellow Way) where Bayt Al-Suhaymi is located, only meters off of Al-Muizz Street, became one of Cairo’s most wealthy streets, as well-heeled citizens competed for property close to “the Palace Walk”, the title given to Al-Muizz Street in Naguib Mahfouz’s novel of the same name. Bayt Al-Suhaymi, built in the 17th century, was one of the grandest homes in Cairo. Restored in the past decade after having fallen into disrepair during the 20th century, this house is now a beautiful example of medieval Cairo’s finest non-monumental architecture.
- Duhr prayers at Sultan Hassan Mosque. Although it stands in the shadow of the Citadel, Sultan Hassan’s Madrassa-Mosque still manages to make a strong impression. The building is a massive example of Mamluk architecture, constructed during the 14th century reign of a sultan who was famous for his extravagant spending. The massive size of the building made it a Spectacle in its day, but even modern visitors are certain to be impressed by its beautiful and imposing architecture. Sultan Hassan is not only famous for its size though. The mosque is noted as the most stylistically coherent of any of Cairo’s monumental mosques—a huge and prototypical example of architectural style of its day. The interior is beautifully decorated and the effect of its huge central court and imposing verticality is impressive.
- Lunch at a public restaurant in El Hussein
- Asr prayers in Al Azhar Mosque, while there are hundreds of old mosques to visit in Cairo, there is none that can compete with Al- Azhar Mosque in standing and importance to the history of Islam.
Founded by the Fatimids in 970 AD as a mosque dedicated to both worship and learning, it developed over the centuries into the most important center of Islamic theology and learning in the world. Over a thousand years since its founding, Al-Azhar Mosque and the university that bears its name draw students from all over the world to learn about the history of Islam and the different schools of thought that govern interpretation of the Koran.
- Al Tannoura show in Wekalet el Ghouri Khan el khalili, the performance is similar to the more commonly known whirling dervishes; however this version of the indigenous dance incorporates instruments and other additional elements.It starts with a group of performers appeared with an array of instruments ranging from the Daf (tambourine) to the Oud and Ney (flute). After a few solos by various singers, a vocalist appeared on a balcony. This specific vocalist, officially known as the Muezzin, sings of spirituality. The second part of the performance, the Sufi Tannoura Dance (El Darawish) is derived from the dance performed as part of a Sufi ritual. The third part of the performance incorporates a more spectacular dance, more based on the showing of skills and costume design (optional).
