►Salah el-Din Citadel:

It was constructed between 1830 and 1848, the mosque was named " The Alabaster Mosque" because most of the walls were made out of pure alabaster. The mosque is a replica of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul

►IBn Tulun Mosque:

The mosque of ibn Tulun was commissioned by Ahmad ibn Tulun
Construction began in 263 AH/876 AD and finished in 266 AH/879 AD. Located on Jebal Yashkur, the mosque was meant to serve as the main congregational mosque of ibn Tulun’s new administrative capital, al-Qata’i.
          The building of this mosque was a further step in asserting Ahmad ibn Tulun’s independence from the ʿAbbasid Caliphate. Immediately striking is the mosque’s minaret, which echoes the designs of the ʿAbbasid mosque in Samarra, Iraq. However, the date of its construction is disputed, some suggesting that it was a later addition to the plan.
