The main door is a masterpiece of bronze work taken from the Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan, while the dome is a typical example of Mamluk stone masonry with a cylindrical base and carved zig-zag pattern. The original facades were particularly tall for the period, due to the extra height added by the Fatimid towers at the base of the minarets.   The famous Mamluk Sultan Hassan who founded (The Mosque of Sultan Hassan), is the son of the great Mamluk Sultan Al-Nasser Mohamed Ibn Qalawoun. He ruled two interrupted reigns, the first time in , when he was 13 years old, to be dethroned by .

The main mihrab itself is covered in multicolored marble mosaics and flanked by four decorative columns (once again, similar to the mihrab of the Sultan Hassan madrassa). The windows around the complex feature the usual stucco frames with colored glass, though the roundels above the mihrabs have wooden frames. [8]Affiliation: Islam. The rich decoration of the qibla wall is apparent in this image of the mihrab and minbar of the Mosque of Sultan Hasan in Cairo, Egypt (see image higher on the page). Furnishings Mosque lamp, 14th century, Egypt or Syria, blown glass, enamel, gilding, x cm (Metropolitan Museum of Art).

  I was excited about visiting the Mosque of Sultan Hassan, which I have seen many times from outside but never ventured within. It was a school, or madrasa, but for the first time in Cairo, the madrasa had also the status of a congregational mosque for Friday sermons. There are many interesting stories about this mosque, which is considered to be Cairo’s finest example of early Mamluk.   Another important feature of mosque decoration are hanging lamps, also visible in the photograph of the Sultan Hasan mosque. Light is an essential feature for mosques, since the first and last daily prayers occur before the sun rises and after the sun sets. Before electricity, mosques were illuminated with oil lamps.
