Suleiman Pasha Mosque
Located within the walls of Egypt's famous Citadel, this mosque is named after its founder who was an Ottoman governor. Built in 1528, the mosque is a fine example of typical Ottoman architecture. The mosque, situated in a small enclosed garden, has a rather lovely entrance by way of a courtyard with arcades topped by small cupolas. It is truly enchanting. The Citadel is a "must-see" anyway, so make sure you don't miss out on the Suleiman Pasha Mosque. Remember to dress modestly and to remove your shoes before entering a mosque.
