The construction of the Citadel of Saladin was started by King Saladin in 1170 A.D, and completed by his brother, King El-Addel. It is located on a high hill that overlooks the old city of Cairo. Saladin built this fortress to protect the old city of Cairo, and it mainly consists of enclosure walls and watchtowers, as well as many, many gates! As every 120 m there are gates into the Citadel that were built at various times in history.
The architectural plan of the fortress resembles many of the ones that were built in Syria and Palestine at the time of the Crusades. Later on, the Citadel became a major training center for the Egyptian army.The Citadel was neglected until the Mamluke Period, in the 14th Century, when they used it as a residence for the Sultan. Also, in that Century, the Sultan El-Naser Mohamed added many buildings, including a Mosque, inside the castle. During the Ottoman times, the Turks installed further reinforcements, and used it as a residence for the Turkish Viceroy, as well as increasing the number of garrisons in the Citadel. Mohammed Ali Mosque, a splendid towering mosque on the north summit of Salah Al-Din Citadel, where it can be seen from every part of Cairo. It is distinguished by its dome, which are 52m high, and its two minarets on the east side of the mosque, which rise 84m. It was so named "The Alabaster Mosque" because of the use of alabaster for coating its interior and exterior walls.
