It was built to defend Cairo from the armies of the Crusaders, and to become the center of Salah El Din's government, after the death of Salah El Din, his nephew, Al Kamel, reinforced the Citadel by enlarging several of the towers. The citadel has two entrances: one opening on Salah Salem road and the other is the old gate that has existed since Salah El Din's age. Now the Citadel has the unique mosque of Mohamed Ali that is built around 1825 AD.
