The Muhammad Ali Mosque, also known as the Alabaster Mosque, is a grand mosque located
in the Citadel of Cairo, Egypt. Built in the 19th century, the mosque was commissioned
by Muhammad Ali Pasha, the ruler of Egypt at the time, and was designed in the Ottoman
style by a Greek architect.
The mosque is famous for its stunning white alabaster facade and its impressive domes and minarets. Inside, we saw intricate decorations and beautiful stained glass windows, as well as the ornate marble floors and walls. The mosque offers stunning panoramic views of Cairo from its hilltop location.
