1878 TOMB OF THE CALIPHS CAIRO EGYPT MOSQUE
This photograph shows the "Tomb of the Caliphs," near Cairo, Egypt. 1879.

The tomb and mosque were favorites with Europeans & Americans that considered it a "must see" destination on Grand Tour vacations of the 19th century--Mark Twain visited the site. It is actually the tomb of the Abbasid Sultans that ruled the Islamic Empire after the death of Mohammed.

The Tomb and Mosque are considered among the best examples of Islamic Medieval architecture.
