Description

the Mosque of Mohamed Ali (or Muhammad Ali Pasha), which was built between 1828 and 1848, perches on the summit of the Saladin Citadel of Cairo. This Ottoman mosque was built in memory of Tusun Pasha, Muhammad Ali's oldest son, who died in 1816. However, it also represents Muhammad Ali's efforts to erase symbols of the Mamluk dynasty that he replaced.
