It may look like the partner of the Sultan Hassan Mosque next door, but half a century separates their construction dates. The mosque's construction began in 1869, but it was not completed until 1912. It was built in pseudo-Mameluke style and now contains the tombs of Sheikh Ali Rifai, a Sufi holy man. It also contains the tombs of King Fouad, his mother, King Farouk and the last Shah of Iran.
it was great place to visit beautiful architecture and just an overall wonder.
I advise you to visit but be respectful to the muslims bacause they do prey there.
Remember to take your shoes off or else you'll get told and be quite emberassed as i was. great place to see
Sultan Hassan Masjid and madrassa is one of the famous one. I was on the trip of the heritage study with another 39 studio mates. But only a few of us which is the photography and report group are able to go to this masjid. We even pray for the jumaat prayer there. what i can say about this masjid is that it is so beautiful with its intricacy and tranquility feelings. It is different from other masjid, in which i think this type can only be found in cairo. i wish i'll be able to go there again..insyaAllah
