The Exit by KhaledNoaman

The Madrassa of Al-Nasir Muhammad is a madrassa and mausoleum located in the Bayn al-Qasrayn region of Cairo, Egypt. It was built in the name of the Mamluk sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad ibn Qalawun, but its construction began in 1296 under the reign of Sultan Al-Adil Kitbugha, who was sultan in between Al-Nasir Muhammad’s first and seconds reigns. When Al-Nasir Muhammad returned to the throne in 1299 he oversaw its construction until its completion in 1303.[1] The Islamic historian Al-Nuwayri records that Al-Adil Kitbugha built the mausoleum along with the prayer iwan, and Al-Nasir Muhammad completed the construction of the building and added the minaret.[2] Also, the Islamic historian Al-Maqrizi reports that Al-Adil Kitbugha oversaw construction of the building up to the top of the inscription band, and Al-Nasir Muhammad carried out the rest of its construction.

Picturesque Prague by ira-aschermair

What a wonderful city is Prague! One feel like being on a film set the whole day long, while walking through the ancient streets. A visit of world’s famous Charles Bridge is more than worth it, although thousands of tourists are there at the same time. The only time where it is not so crowded is early in the morning. Then you are alone with a few natives on their way to work and – of course – other photographers.
