To begin your daily Cairo day tours, our tour guide will meet you at your hotel in Cairo or Giza in the morning. Start your Coptic and Islamic Cairo Tour with going inside the Saladin Citadel and the Mohamed Ali Alabaster Mosque, which served as the capital of Egypt for many years.
Around 1176 A.D., Salah Al-Din, a well-known Muslim leader, constructed the Citadel of Saladin. Given that the design was inspired by Istanbul's renowned Blue Mosque of Sultan Ahmed, it serves as a representation of Ottoman architecture in Cairo. You will be taken to another historic location in the area to see the mosque of Ibn Tulun, the oldest still-standing mosque in Africa, the Mamluk mosque and Madrasas of Sultan Hassan, and the Islamic complex dubbed by historians the pyramid of Islamic architecture in Cairo.
Large mosque and madrassa known as the Sultan Hassan Mosque-Madrassa were built in Cairo's Old City during the Mamluk Islamic era of Egypt. The mosque's astounding size and cutting-edge architectural characteristics were acclaimed as astonishing when it was first constructed. Al-Maqrizi wrote that the mosque was home to various "wonders of construction" and that an-Nasir Hasan, a sultan with a brief and unremarkable history, had ordered its construction.
During Egypt's Mamluk Islamic era, a sizable mosque and madrassa known as the Sultan Hassan Mosque-Madrassa were constructed in the Old City of Cairo. The mosque was unique when it was first built because of its enormous size and cutting-edge architectural features. Al-Maqrizi asserted that the unimpressive and transitory sultan an-Nasir Hasan had given the mosque his approval and that it included several "wonders of architecture."
