About Al Mustafa Mosque

Al Mustafa Mosque is possibly the most striking building in Sharm el-Sheikh. In fact, at first glance, it seems more like a magical castle than a mosque.
Designed by Egyptian architect Fouad Tawfik Hafez, the building is a mixture of Ottoman and Mamluk architecture. Completed in 2008 at a reported cost of 31 million pounds, it can accommodate around 3000 worshippers. The imposing building features two 76-meter-long minarets and gleaming domes. Inside, the mosque is no less beautiful. When illuminated at night, the mosque truly is a divine spectacle. A truly captivating building, Al Mustafa Mosque should not be missed.
