Very little of interest to the tourist its coves are fairly run down and very little of interest, even the local visitors don't seem to have a lot of respect. Unless you want to visit a Mosque give it a miss
When you walk down the Muizz Street (Muizz li Din Allah) in the Islamic Quarter in Cairo till the end, you will reach one of the big old town gates, the Bab el Futuh. Before this gate you will find the El Hakim Mosque on the right side.
Its open to public most of the times. Just avoid the praying...
A beautiful and peaceful place, the architecture is amazing and at sunrise and sunset you see pigeons flying in circles which is a beautiful sight. you can just sit there and do nothing and relax yourself
It has been almost completely rebuilt at enormous cost and taken over by some branch of Islam which does not favour visitors of other religious persuasions. You do not feel welcome. One of the few places where women have to cover themselves. Of very little interest architecturally or artistically.
I did not know what this mosque was even called, till I got home and looked it up. Massive and stunning mosque. So tranquil and relaxing in here.
No entrance ticket as this is regular mosque. But guys will ask to store your shoes away,and it comes with a price lol. I gave 5 and They asked me for 20...
I Love this Mosque. Although it was renovated in a way that destroyed a lot of the old buildings, but I still love it, and I love those who renewed it.
The scenes is fantastic during the rain when everything reflects. Also at night.
If you are lucky, you will find someone to open the door to have a nice...
