This is no ordinary mosque; literally engraved in the Mokattam mountain almost 200 feet (60 m) above ground in the east of old Cairo Egypt, built in 1015 during the Fatimid era by "Khalifa Al Hakem Be' Amr Ellah".
Today it's not well known, you wouldn't find it in regular tourism guides to Cairo Egypt, it's so deserted and almost falling down, there is no way you can reach it unless you actually climb the mountain.
This shot -I believe- is one of the first clear shots of the mosque online, you can look it up all you want, the mosque's name is "Al lou' lou'a" mosque in case you want look it up, it means the "pearl" mosque and was known as a place of acceptable prayers.
To get this photo I went to an old cemetery at the bottom of the mountain, climbed a relatively high tomb stone with my tripod and hid from the people there and from the police, my driver helped cover me. I think it's really worth its own documentary, which I already did and it's ready to publish with photos.
Please next time you are in Cairo, visit the Lost Mosque, you can find the location map on the website I created: www.lostmosque.com
