Mosques of Cairo. Blue mosque or Aksunkurs mosque. What magnificent tile was presumed to themselves by rich people of Egypt?

What tile was preferred by rich people of Egypt
At voyage to Egypt try to visit temples of Cairo. To 1 of them – the Blue mosque or Aksunkur’s mosque – can reach on the minibus No. 68 from Medan Ramses or Bab Zuveyla, or No. 75 from Medan Tahrir. In the same place hotels of Egypt the prices on which change are located is dependent on a season and convenience of a site. However, construction now suitable us is closed on restoration. In 1347 when a mosque have built, it was more moderate: arches аблак surrounded the central yard-sagm with palm trees and the chirping birds, now become not well-groomed and dusty. The tile in the iznik style, brought of Turkey or Syria, has appeared in the 1650th years at Ibrahim-age who has appropriated a mosque of the XIV century and has anew finished it. The tile of indigo colour and turquoise on a wall кибла on either side of from perfectly decorated михраба – with cypresses, flowers and other flower motives – has appeared at this time. Allow such luxury only rich people of Egypt could. Apparently, made in Damascus, it is possible to behold similar products and round a tomb of Ibra-gim-agi in a southwest corner of construction. Directly thanks to this clay decor the mosque has received the name the name and has got such popularity among the foreigners preferring rounds to Egypt to other directions of rest. The marble minbar inlaid with an orange-pink, plam, green and grey stone, remained from an initial structure, no less than not so long since restored round minaret from which the fine view of the Citadel reveals, and in clear day it is possible even to behold pyramids on the distant end of the city.
As rich people of Egypt were at enmity…
The founder of a mosque, Shams ad-Din Aksunkur, built intrigues against successors of sultan Al-Nasir, own father-in-law which descendant Al-Ashrakuchuk ("Kid") has ascended to a throne in 6 years, «процарствовал» 5 months and has been strangled by the brother three years later. Excursion rounds to Egypt will allow to learn more laboriously about this bloody history. Al-Kamil Shaban’s board (not to connect to Shaban II who has erected madrasah) proceeded year, has come to the end with palace revolution and the introduction on a throne of his son-in-law Muzafar Hagi. Remembering, as Aksunkur manipulated Kuchuk (it is buried about an entrance in a mosque) and has dexterously organised plot against Shaban, Muzaffar let’s the order strangle him soon. Therefore councils to tourists in Egypt are rather simple: it is not necessary to intrigue and use cunning, consequences can be pitiable. Naturally, it is a joke!
Pyramids of old Egypt remember the slaves who have become sultans
From this mosque al-Vazir Women Street go down and incorporate to darling of the leader to the Citadel. If you there also go, turn on it is left and rise up. Through couple of hundreds metres to the West from the Blue mosque boor mothers Bashtak – a bath which served inhabitants of quarter Darb al-Akhmar settled down. In many dwellings of this area there were no conveniences while the prices for real estate in Egypt for certain were comparable with modern. But now baths are closed, as well as the most part of ordinary steam baths of Islamic Cairo. Skilfully decorated portal of a structure deserves attentive survey. On a lancet arch the smallest towel – a symbol джамдара, or «the inspector of clothes» is represented. In mamlyuksky society people in Egypt in such position were lower, than «people of a sword» (the ministers elected from emirs of a hundred part), but the 1st level with court positions of the taster, a chashenosets, the keeper of shoes and sticks for a polo. A little мамлюков, after become sultans, included the name of a former position (or the price, paid for them when they were slaves) in number of own titles. And such cases of a pyramid of old Egypt remember much…
To reach the Citadel from Hammam, pass 300 m on Shary Suk es-Silakh (earlier it there was a weapon market, now – a place where trade in starenky ball-bearings) by sabil-kuttaba Rukayi Duda (No. 41) with a grandiose dilapidated facade and al-Yusufi madrasah the chashenosets of the sultan was which founder.
