About this place
Ibn Tulun Mosque is the oldest and the largest mosque in Cairo. The construction of the building started in the 9th century AD by Ahmad Ibn Tulun and it was completed in 879 on Mount Yashkur. Even though over the years it fell in disuse, especially because the city center moved to what is today Cairo center, the mosque is the most visited tourist attraction of the city.
The mosque has a large courtyard and a round brick minaret which was built few centuries later. Around its courtyard walls there are arcades with Qur´an inscriptions.
