Islamic Monuments in Cairo : The Practical Guide (New Revised 7th Edition) Paperback / softback


Cairo's Islamic monuments are part of an uninterrupted tradition that spans over a thousand years of building activity.

No other Islamic city can equal Cairo's spectacular heritage, nor trace its historical and architectural development with such clarity.

The discovery of this historic core, first visually by nineteenth-century western artists then intellectually by twentieth-century Islamic art specialists, now awaits the delight of the general visitor. This new, fully revised edition of a popular and handy guide continues to walk the visitor around two hundred of the city's most interesting Islamic monuments.

It also keeps pace with recent restoration initiatives and newly opened monuments.
