Egypt: Mausoleum of Ahmad al-Qasid

Mausoleum of Ahmad al-Qasid

This Mausoleum, dating to 1335 AD (735 AH) and located across Al-Gamaliyya street from the famous Mosque of Al-Hakim, is a tiny stone cube with a rib-and-fillet plastered-brick dome, at the base of which is an inscription band. Adjacent to the tomb is a small zawiya, which is entered through a simple trilobed stone portal. The remains of a geometric carved stone window grille can be seen above the door.
