This is one place I haven’t visited on my previous trips to Cairo.  Today, I managed to find some time to go to the Cairo Citadel and take a few shots.

It was a flying visit – an hour or so including my journey there and back to the hotel. I did however get a good feel of the place.  Unfortunately I also saw what I expected: a disorganised, messy and unmaintained site.

The Mohammad Ali Mosque was very interesting… I love the design from outside and in.  The height of this area also offers great views of the city.  Have a look at the pollution which seemed especially bad today.
