nothing so special about that mosque, except that it built on one of the sides of Luxor temple, where the temple was birried under the sand and when it was discovered they kept the mosque as it is.

On top of the Luxor Temple you will find the Abu el Haggag mosque. It is interesting because you can see pillars of the pharaonic temple inside a 13th century mosque with the tomb of Mr Haggag himself. Beautiful views all around.
