Lonely Planet review

As the closest monument to the Bab al-Mahruq entrance to Al-Azhar Park, this mosque makes a good landmark for finding your way there. The 14th-century structure is distinguished by beautiful stone-inlay floors, intricate carved-stucco medallions in the walls and a beautiful tiled dome. Across the square is a gallery selling neighbourhood handicrafts. Coming from Bab Zuweila, to find the mosque (and Bab al-Mahruq) walk east behind the Mosque of Qijmas al-Ishaqi.
