City: Cairo
Description:

Built by Mamluk Sultan Al-Nasir c. 1304 in honor of his father Qalawun, Qalawun Complex contains a mosque, a madrasah (Islamic school) and the mausoleum where Sultan Qalawun is buried. The mausoleum in particular is often described as the world's second most beautiful, second only to the Taj Mahal, where it slightly resembles to it. Being a massive complex, it is said to have unique exteriors built with urban aesthetic techniques in Mamluk architecture. Not only the exteriors, but the interiors as well, are notable and worth seeing.
