I had the dull pleasure of visiting Citadel, a kind of prison built by Salah Al din in the 12th century. It is included in the stories of Mohammad- ali who invited 470 mamaluke leaders to feast on specialties of Egypt but he instead trapped them in a long narrow passageway and having them slaughtered by his 2,000 strong army, one mamaluke leader survived by jumping the wall with his horse. Within the Citadel complex are the following attractions: Al-Gawhara Jewel Palace, Mohammed Ali Mosque, Police Museum, Sultan Al-Nasir Mosque, Military Museum, Carriage Museum, Archaeological Museum, Suleyman Pasha Mosque and Bab el-Azab mosque. I found all these expensive attractions completely pointless! All that they had was boards of information and old, rooms with no architectual importance, none what so ever.
