Al-Qalawun Complex

Another Version of the Taj Mahal

Another Version of the Taj Mahal

Located on Al-Mo’ez Street in Cairo, the Qalawun complex was built by the Mamluk Sultan Al-Nassir in 1304 AD in honour of his father Qalawun.

The complex houses a mosque, a Madrasa, a Bimaristan and a mausoleum where Sultan Qalawun is buried.
It is often described as the world's second most beautiful mausoleum in the world, only after the Taj Mahal, which it slightly resembles.
