This mosque, located at the Citadel close to the ‎mosque built by Muhammad Ali later on, was built on ‎the ruins of an older mosque dating to Sultan Al-Kamil ‎Muhammad of the Ayyubid dynasty. It was also known ‎as the Mosque of Khutbah (sermon) or the An-Nasiri ‎Mosque. Its dimensions are 63meters by 57meters, ‎and it was restored by the Committee for the ‎Preservation of Arab Monuments in 1947.‎
