Egypt in Pictures: Al-Hussein Mosque (7)

In support of the Egyptian people who are demanding reforms in their country, for each day the protests continue, I will post daily photos of Egypt for viewers to see what their lovely country is really like. Photos are from a 5-6 week stay in Egypt in the summer of 2008.

The Hussein Mosque is one of the most famous religious landmarks in Cairo. Right outside the Khan el Khalili, it is an extremely well visited mosque. This is because it has a tomb inside where the head of the Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed’s (pbuh) is supposed to be buried. History tells us that Hussein was brutally murdered and decapitated by power-hungry rulers of the time. The photo is of the tomb inside the mosque.
