Mosque of Qijmas al-Ishaqi information
This remarkable mosque, built in 1481 by Prince Sayf al-Din Qijmas, above a row of shops that occupy the street level, is one of the best examples of Mamluk architecture. Its plain but wonderful facade and minaret feature on the Egyptian £50 note. The craftmanship is exquisite. Note in particular the stunning multicoloured marble panel above the entrance, rich and well-preserved marble paving, beautiful stained-glass windows and a stunning decorated wooden ceiling.
