9789774162053: Islamic Monuments in Cairo: The Practical Guide; New Revised Edition

Cairo's Islamic monuments are part of an uninterrupted tradition that spans over a thousand years of building activity. No other Islamic city can equal Cairo's spectacular heritage, nor trace its historical and architectural development with such clarity. The discovery of this historic core, first visually by nineteenth-century western artists then intellectually by twentieth-century Islamic art specialists, now awaits the delight of the general visitor.
This new, fully revised edition of a popular and handy guide continues to walk the visitor around two hundred of the city's most interesting Islamic monuments. It also keeps pace with recent restoration initiatives and newly opened monuments such as the Amir Taz Palace and the Sitt Wasila House.

"This book ought to be in the luggage of every visitor to Cairo. Furthermore, once home, lovers and students of Cairo's architecture will find it a convenient and accurate quick reference as well as a cherished souvenir of many profitable and enjoyable rambles among the monuments of Cairo."
-Jonathan M. Bloom, Journal of the American Research Center in Egypt

"Any visitor to Cairo who wants to see the monuments should not be without it."
-Bernard O'Kane

"Anyone interested in knowing more about Cairo's Islamic architecture should pick up the excellent Islamic Monuments in Cairo: The Practical Guide."
-Lonely Planet: Cairo, 1998
