Muhammad Ali Tomb


Muhammad Ali (1769-1849) was a worthy successor to the Mamlukes and Turks. He is buried beneath a white marble cenotaph, behind a bronze grill at the mosque named after him in Cairo, Egypt.
The above photo shows just one fourth of the grill


Notice the green mantles below provided to female tourist visitors who are not properly dressed according to Muslim standards, meaning they're wearing skirts, shorts or sleeveless tops.
