Muhammad Ali Mosque (Part 2)
One of my favorite places that I visited when I was in Cairo was the Muhammad Ali Mosque. It took 18 years to build and was started way back in 1839. You can see the beautiful courtyard and entrance in my last post here, but now let's take a peek inside. Once I entered, I knew I was in a place unlike any I'd ever been before. The contrast of darkness/light and beauty/decay made the Mosque a unique and memorable destination.
