Cairo Citadel and Mohamed Ali Mosque

The Cairo Citadel is a medieval Islamic fortification located on Mokattam Hill in the centre of Cairo. It is believed to have been constructed in the early 12th century. The Mosque of Muhammad Ali in the centre of the Citadel is a grandiose Ottoman structure, constructed during early 19th century. This major landmark can be seen from far away, with large domes and minarets defining Cairo’s skyline. The architecture has a striking resemblance to the one in Istanbul, as it was built by the same model as Yeni Mosque in Istanbul. The external facade style was largely borrowed from Ottoman period, ironically making it the least Egyptian amongst other monuments. The intricate interior decoration inside the domes and prayer halls is awe inspiring with heavily gilded wooden columns, ceilings and walls.
