Why locals love it

it's very old place, very very old, like 500 years...and a very spacious mosque where you can feel the calmness and peace of these ages and also where they enjoy the the very rare beautiful islamic architecture.

Why you should visit it

if they are interested in the different kinds of beauty in cairo, so this is one of the main plates that cairo can offer..
also it can say a lot about the history of the country and it's people and their culture so we can understand more about the status-qua

Special tip

for foreigner women, you need to be covered for all your body and also bring a scarf for your hair (this is the religious tradition of the place)
