Originally it served as both a fortress and a royal city.  In same area; Mohamed Ali Mosque is also located. Mohamed Ali Pasha was buried in a tomb carved from Carrara marble, in the courtyard of the mosque. The mosque was built on the site of old Mamlouk buildings in Cairo's Citadel between 1830 and 1848 by Yusuf Bushnak from Istanbul. The ground on which the mosque was erected was built with debris from the earlier buildings of the Citadel. The stripped walls were clad with wood painted to look like marble.
