About Cairo Citadel

The Saladin Castle, also known as Cairo Castle, is located on the Mugetam Mountain in the eastern suburbs of Cairo. The castle is high above sea level, and was built in the 11th century by General Saladin to resist the invasion of the Crusaders. The Saladin Castle is divided by inner city and outer city. The rulers of the dynasties have left ruins here. There is also the famous Muhammad Ali Mosque in Egypt, which is worth visiting.

    In front of the castle is a green grassland with a wall 2 meters wide. The castle is divided into inner and outer cities. Palaces and temples are built in the city. The spire of the Ali Mosque rises like a sword into the clouds, and the huge dome shines in the sunshine.

    Ancient civilization left only difficult language and legends became immortal poems. Entering the Castle of Saladin in Cairo is the largest mosque in Egypt. Standing at the top of the mosque, you can see the whole city of Cairo. Walking in the ancient civilization, the camera fixed the remains of a hundred years. I hope that in the wave of time, the ancient civilization can be inherited, waiting for the rings, and eternally exist in the treasures of human civilization.

    Saladin Castle, looks very big, stroll down is still very small, win in can see panorama. I don't see the pyramids that can be seen in legend. In other words, looking at the military prison, and seeing myself standing in the place of the Mamuluk massacre, I feel gloomy.

    Saladin Castle is very famous in Cairo. But the tour guide didn't arrange us to visit it specially. He just took a long view from the bus. The tour guide just gave a brief introduction. The castle is very spectacular and has a history of several hundred years, but it is much inferior to other scenic spots which have a history of several thousand years.

    The place is not very big, but the church is really shocked, especially the spherical dome. It feels like a paradise. From the church, you can see the whole city. The cause is very open. The people here are very enthusiastic. They will take photos of you. There is a military museum next to them for free. It will be over an hour.

    There is a magnificent Muhammad-Ali mosque in Castle Sa, which is Mohammad & Ali. It took 14 years for Ali to complete in 1830, following the pattern of Ottoman Turkey's Great Mosque, and has a strong Turkish style. The exterior wall of the mosque is covered with yellow alabaster, giving people a pure aesthetic feeling, also known as "alabaster mosque". The large dome of the chapel is about 52 meters high and 21 meters in diameter. It shines in the sunshine. The two spires are more than 85 meters high and soar into the clouds like sharp swords. They are one of the symbols of Cairo. At the same time, there are early prisons, military museums, police museums for visits. Like the cafe seat on the top of the hill, the wind is very pleasant. On the walls of Saladin Castle, it is the best place to overlook the whole Islamic city of Cairo, which occupies the mountain topography and commands the highest position. When the weather is good, you can see the vision of the pyramid.
