We will enter the citadel that contains more than one building from the inside, but most significantly is the Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali Basha who ruled Egypt from 1805 till 1849 and founded the great history of Modern Egypt. The mosque is called the alabaster mosque due to the wide use of granite panels on the inside and the outside of the great mosque which reflects the beautiful Turkish style of architecture.
