"The Medresa of Sultan Hassan at Cairo...is a collegiate mosque, cruciform in plan. Four iwans, or recessed porches, with immense pointed arches, constitute the arms of the cross. There is a minimum of decoration, and the walls of the 100-ft sahn rise skywards with splendid architectural effect. The founder's domed mausoleum, situated behind the qibla, is enriched with stalactite decoration."

This is fantastic, thanks so much for sharing! The HDR is a little over the top though.
