The Al-Azhar Mosque
The Al-Azhar Mosque is the most celebrated of all Cairo’s medieval mosques. It is famous mostly due to it’s historic and religious importance than its aesthetic value. But it’s aesthetic value is not to be taken lightly. It is truly beautiful and captures the wonder and exotiscm of the Islamic world. It was the first mosque built in Fatimid Cairo and the first theological college, and has played a continuous role in the history of the city from its foundation to the present day.
Pyramids of Giza
The very last remaining wonder of the ancient world; for nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry and sheer bulk of the great Giza Pyramids have invited the obvious questions: ‘How were we built, and why?’. Centuries of research have given us parts of the answer. Built as massive tombs on the orders of the pharaohs, they were constructed by teams of workers tens-of-thousands strong. Today they stand as an awe-inspiring tribute to the might, organisation and achievements of ancient Egypt.
