Sunday stamps

For this week's theme of 'churches, castles and fortifications', I decided to look through my 'accumulation' of Egyptian stamps for a stamp showing the Citadel in Cairo, which is the first stamp below, and then continuing with 'religious buildings', I found some more with mosques and minarets.

Cairo Citadel (wiki link)

Sultan Hassan mosque, Cairo (wiki link)
These were issued in 1953 and are part of a set with other images.

Then next views of minarets and mosques in Cairo, airmail issues.

  5. The view through the window oping of the minarets of the airmail issues is my favourite.
