Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan – Photos (2)


Mausoleum

The Mausoleum

I like the unfinished drama of this Mausoleum …

Mokarnasat

Mokarnasat

The wonderfully ornamented wooden Mokarnasat which was supposed to hold the wooden  dome. The dome is reconstructed … I don’t like the cement dome .. this is why I didn’t show it …

The Mausoleum .. He meant for this to be his burial place .. it is not … did it make any difference …
