Monuments Restoration   ::  Completed Projects   ::  2002  ::  

Client: Ministry of Antiquities
Description: Mosque
it is one of the mosques that was established in the era of the Ayyubid state in Egypt. The mosque consists of a rectangle, preceded by several entrances, descending to the first entrance by several steps, and the external entrance is followed by another door that leads to a large corridor with two marble columns, and then comes the third door, which has two wooden shutters. The deeply engraved decorations were taken to him from the Imam al-Shafi’i mosque and dated 608 AH. The door leads to the rectangular mosque and ends with the qibla wall, where the mihrab and minbar are located. The Ministry of Awqaf built the mosque during the reign of Egypt’s Khedive Abbas Hilmi II in 1322 AD, and this appears from the kufic writing on the minbar. The kings of Egypt used to go to the tombs of the two imams: Al-Laith and Al-Shafi’i to visit and be blessed, especially Sultan Qaytbay and Sultan Al-Ghouri. The Arab Contractors Company renovated and developed the mosque under the supervision of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
