Egypt: Cairo: Muslim - The Suleyman Aga El-Silahdar Mosque


The Suleyman Aga El-Silahdar Mosque

 

The Suleyman Aga El-Silahdar Mosque and "Sabil" dating from 1839 comprise a sabil, medersa and mosque, with a single facade overlooking the street. It is Turkish in design, but the rounded, inscribed marble facade of the sabil conforms to no particular style. The canopy surmounting the complex is decorated in relief, but it is really the pencil like minaret which catches the visitor's attention.
