It is characterized by the size of the building, the height of the wall and the minaret, and inside the mosque there is a mausoleum surrounded by a wooden cabin made in the style of Arab mashrabiyas. There is still a basement and a spacious void under the mosque. It is considered one of the rare mosques in Lower Egypt, especially in its planning, decoration, and construction method. It was built in the Mamluk style and used as a school. It consists of an open courtyard, the floor of which is decorated with mosaics, and includes four iwans, the largest of which is the qibla iwan, and each iwan has a ceiling decorated with exquisite woodwork. The iwans were dedicated to teaching the four Islamic schools of thought.
