The Saladin Citadel and Mosque of Mohamed Ali



The Saladin Citadel and Mosque of Mohamed Ali - An excursion in Cairo, Egypt
The location was fortified by the Ayyubid ruler Salah al-Din (Saladin) between 1176 and 1183 AD, to protect it from the Crusaders. The hill itself has a huge chunk missing and it might have been used as the quarry by ancient Egyptians for limestone to build the Great Pyramids in nearby Giza. It contains the Mosque of Mohamed Ali, which was built between 1828 and 1848. The citadel also contains other mosques, Al-Gawhara Palace, the National Military Museum and the Police Museum
