The Grand Al Mursi Mosque – Keep Calm and Wander

Al Mursi Mosque

The grand Al Mursi Mosque in Alexandria is devoted to a great Sufi Saint Abul Abbas al-Mursi. In fact, his body is laid here. This is a very historical mosque where both males and females can go in and worship but separately.

I wasn’t planning to visit this place but I got lost looking for the Catacomb of El Shoqafa. I asked people around the area but no one could really direct me where the Catacomb was. My google map was useless but it pointed me to the area around this mosque. After going and asking around, I gave up.

Of all the mosques I’ve seen in Alexandria, Al Mursi Mosque is the most beautiful.
