Egypt in Pictures: Nasr Mosque (11)

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.

An-Nasr Mosque is one of the two main mosques inside the Cairo Citadel complex. Most tourists flock to the Muhammad Ali Mosque that is glitzy, better maintained and much bigger. This one built in the early 14th century by the Mamluks is several centuries older and showcases a completely different style and ambience.
