Al Rifai Mosque, Cairo

4.7
See the final resting place of the last Egyptian king and other members of the royal family at Al Rifai Mosque. Constructed over the course of four decades (1869-1912), the grand religious site boasts traditional Muslim architecture complemented by numerous paintings on the walls and woodwork decor by local artisans. Take a moment to reflect on the grandiose ceiling hung with candelabra, and smaller, secluded prayer niches where you can spend a few moments in peace and silence.
