Lonely Planet review for Mosque of Al-Maridani
The 1339 Mosque of Al-Maridani incorporates architectural elements from several periods: eight granite columns were taken from a Pharaonic monument; the arches contain Roman, Christian and Islamic designs; and the Ottomans added a fountain and wooden housing. Trees in the courtyard, attractive mashrabiyya screening and a lack of visitors make this a peaceful place to stop.
