The Citadel and the Mohamed Ali Mosque sit on a high bluff east of bustling Cairo, Egypt.

Description

Visiting Cairo's Mohamed Ali Mosque invites an exploration of the grand, domed interior's multiple sources of light. None are greatly illuminating. This image shows the many lighted lanterns hanging from a gigantic chandelier suspended below the spacious dome overhead. But the brightest light comes from the mosque's few entryways, used by tourists and a few of the faithful, for it no longer serves a religious function. The mosque was built in the early 1800s on the ruins of Suleiman's 11th-century Citadel.
