City: Cairo

Raised in 877 by the Abbasid governor, this mosque has a style reminding of the Samarra mosque in Iraq, quite different from other Egyptian mosques. Built on a six-acre site, the mosque was large enough to accommodate all of the city's males for Friday prayer. The mosque has an open interior, and the minaret, the oldest in Egypt, is accessible for a little baksheesh. Apparently being the oldest mosque in the city, it is said to be one of the mosques long surviving in Cairo and is also recognized for its large size.
