Built by the second last Mamluk sultan of Egypt - Sultan Quansuh al Ghouri in 1504, the Mosque-Madrassa of al Ghouri is a fine example of Mamluk buildings. The exterior facade is embellished with even bands of cream marble, Arabic calligraphy and geometrical motifs. The entrance has a baroque alcove door of black and white marble which gives it an ethereal look. Though it is not a huge shrine, it seems expansive due to its lovely marble floors, beautifully carved stone walls, stained glass curved windows, gold colored hewn wood ceiling and a huge Gothic iron chandelier. This historic place, resplendent of Mamluk art.
