The Funerary-Religious Complex of Sultan Qaytbay (1472-74). Probably the most beautiful funerary complex in Cairo, it has a mosque, a madrasa, and a qubba. It also has the most elegant 3-tiered minaret and the most intricately-carved stone dome with stellar patterns. (Image courtesy of the Fine Arts Library of the Harvard College Library.)
