Mosque of Qijmās al-Isḥāqī (Cairo)

Located in Darb al-Aḥmar, Cairo.

Photographs taken by Simon Rousselot on November 2019

Several emblems engraved on knots of grating. It is really hard to know that the emblems are there small and in an unusual place. Most of them are even upside down.

Possible dating: between 885/1480 and 886/1481
