One wall of the fountain located directly in the middle of the courtyard of the Mosque of Muhammad Ali, regarded as the founder of modern Egypt, still offers running water. The Mosque of Muhammad Ali is located inside the Citadel of Cairo Egypt. The famous citadel was built between 1176 and 1183 to protect people and the territory from the Crusaders. The Mosque was built in 1830 and 1848 in memory of Tusun Pasha, Muhammad Ali’s oldest son. The Citadel is a popular tourist spot because of its great history, fantastic architecture and view of the city. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Sara Csurilla)
