Saladin Citadel in Cairo

One of the major landmarks of the Egyptian capital is surely the Saladin Citadel. Constructed by Saladin, the famous Arab army leader and king to protect Cairo against any out attacks, the citadel was built in the 10th century AD over a high cliff overlooking Cairo. A visit to the citadel is included in various Egypt travel packages.

The heart and the most remarkable monument located inside the citadel today is the Mosque of Mohamed Aly, the founder of modern Egypt. This is in addition to the Military Museum, the Police Museum, the Mosque of Al Nasser Mohamed, and the Mosque of Suleiman Pasha El Khadim. Visiting the citadel is recommended for all tourists who travel to Egypt.
