A visit to Cairo’s Al-Rifa’i Mosque will reveal the history of the Egyptian Royals. The mosque was originally built as a mausoleum for the Abbasid Governor Ahmad Ibn Tulun, a slave who would later build the Tulunid Dynasty. The original mosque was restored in 1296 by the Mamluk Sultan Lajin, and a black marble fountain was installed.

When visiting a mosque in Egypt, make sure to respect the place. You must take your shoes off before entering. In addition, you should refrain from talking loudly or disrupting others. While photography is permitted, some mosques require a fee. So it is best to dress modestly and humbly. And always, remember to tip the shoe keeper when leaving a mosque. This will show your respect for the Egyptian community.

A visit to Cairo is not complete without visiting the Al-Rifa’i Mosque. This impressive mosque is located on a rock outcropping and is considered the oldest fully functioning Islamic site in Cairo.
