Founder: Prince and Major-General Abdeen Bek

Registration: Ministerial decree No. 10357 of 1951 AD

General planning: It was built in the Ottoman style and resembles the palace of Muhammad Ali in its design. The main façade opens onto Gami’ Abdeen Street.
The street leads to a dogleg entrance which in turn grants access to the mosque.

The mosque is composed of a wide square-shaped open space topped by a main dome surrounded by four half-domes along the four sides of the mosque two meters above the floor.

Its marble panelling is painted, and it features a marble minbar (pulpit), which is oriented north-east, decorated with golden floral designs, near the mihrab (the niche marking the direction of prayer).

The mosque also features a wooden seat for the Quran reciter, inlaid with ivory and pearl. Eight marble columns support a wooden dekka (platform) with two handrails and detailed grille designs.
