Photo by Raymon Kondos © 2009 Your Egypt

The complex was completed in 1474 by late Burgi Mamluk Sultan Al-Ashraf Qaitbay.

It is one of the most beautiful of the Mamluk era and is actually the best surviving example of the Mamluk art. Qaitbay was a very active Sultan in terms of construction. He left many monuments and urged his emirsWhat does it mean? to build.

The complex is rich with workmanship. The mosque's dome is well carved and has a unique design and so is also its high minaretWhat does it mean?.
The complex in general is not to be missed.
