Mogamaa Al-Adyan is a historical quarter in old Cairo where tourists from around the world visit to see Egypt's rich history

Mogamaa Al-Adyan includes Amr Ibn Al-As, the first mosque built in Egypt and Africa and the fourth built since the beginning of Islam, after the mosques of Medina, Basra and Kufa.

Next to the mosque stands a group of churches and monasteries where Jesus and the Virgin Mary passed during their trip to Egypt, as well as the Jewish temple.
