A nice place to visit after visiting the citadel. As with most places, try to have exact change. They will pretend like they don't have chance to make some more money off of you. There are also... more »
A madrassa (Islamic school) atleast 600 years old. Sultan Hassan madrassa and Rifai mosuqe are in the same complex and require one common ticket to enter more »
A fantastic place that I am suggesting it for any one to visit
This building is the best Islamic style building in the world. It was designed and engineered very well. This mosque deserve to visit and stay long time inside it. You will smell history there. It is better to read about the history of this mosque before visiting it. That will let you know better and value the things you see. Parking is hard at that area.
What would I say! This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. It's as great as the Great pyramids. Never miss to visit it while you are in cairo. You will never forget it
So simple and so heartfelt, this place is very impressive.
