PLEASE NOTE:
 
The title of this photograph may be incorrect and it should be The Mosque Complex of the Emir Akhur (1503/04)
 
In the book by Caroline Williams (1999) Islamic Monuments in Cairo: A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition (American University in Cairo Press) it says:
 
"This mosque complex belongs to Qanibay al-Sayfi, also known as al-Rammah ('the lancer'), who was Amir Akhur Kabir, or grand master of the horse, during the reign of Sultan al-Ghuri ..." (p.73)
 
It is located opposite Sultan Hassan mosque near the Citadel in Cairo.
