Mosque of Ibn Tulun

Two weekends ago I went down to the mosque of Ibn Tulun, the Gayer-Anderson museum, and the mosques of Al-Rifai and Sultan Hasssan. It was a fun photo expedition because the mosques and museum were MUCH less touristy than some of the other mosques I had been to.

Ibn Tulun was especially interesting because it was so simple yet powerful. We practically had the mosque to ourselves, which led to some great photo opportunities. These first three pictures are of Ibn Tulun, the third was taken from on top of the minaret.




A GREAT location for a basketball court, with the Citadel in the background. CC vs. OG 2009 here guys?
