Founded in AD 970 as the centrepiece of the newly created Fatimid city, Al Azhar is one of Cairo’s earlier mosques. Its sheikh is considered the highest theological authority for Egyptian Muslims. As part of the Fatimid architecture illumination project, FlexgloTM F15 LED lights are mounted on the top of the wall to light up the hollowed-out floral patterns, a element to traditional Islamic architecture. Also, the light strips are mounted on one minaret, outlining the structure of the tower.
The added lighting provided by Clear Lighting is designed to extend the mosque’s daytime grandeur into nighttime, turning it into a symbol of the city and adorning its skyline. In the same time, it helps the worshipers have a comfortable spiritual experience during prayer and other religious activities.
