Ibn Tuloun Mosque which was completed in 879 AD on Mount Yashkur in a settlement named al-Qata'i by the founder of Egypt's Tulounid Dynasty at the period (868-905 AD). The mosque that he had built over a period of three years of mudbrick became the focal point of the Tulunid capital that lasted only 26 years. It was the third congregational mosque to be built in what is now greater Cairo, and at approximately 26,318 square meters in size.

Next, continue to Al-Hussein area to visit

Al-Azhar Mosque which is located in the center of an area teaming with the most beautiful Islamic monuments from the 10th century, Al-Azhar mosque established in 972 (361 H) in a porticoed style shortly after the founding of Cairo itself. It was originally designed by the Fatimid general Jawhar El-Sequili (Gawhara Qunqubay, Gawhar al-Sakkaly) and built on the orders of Caliph Muezz Li-Din Allah.

In this area you have the opportunity to go shopping in the

Khan El-Khalili Bazaar which is nearby, then finish off with transfer back to your hotel.
