The Mosque of Ahmad Ibn Tulun is the oldest mosque in the city surviving in its original form, and is the largest mosque in Cairo in terms of land area. It was commissioned by Ahmad ibn Ţūlūn, the Turkic Abbassid governor of Egypt.
The mosque’s design was inspired by the mosque of Samarra in Ibn Tulun’s homeland in Iraq. It was built with the intention of being large enough to house his entire army during Friday prayers, at over 26,000sq meters, so it is the third largest mosque in the world.
