Constructed on a throne only 9 years are elderly, it has been displaced by the regent, is rehabilitated later, but within 10 years was in pity aspects under Beybarsa al-Gashankira power. Eventually, he has achieved execution Beybarsa and could take pleasure in long board (1293-1340, taking into account interregnums) which became time of blossoming of mamlyuksky culture. Excursion rounds to Egypt will convince you of it. Construction of 30 mosques, a cool aqueduct and the channel to the North from Cairo testify to al-Nasira addiction to public works which mixed up with his hobby for cultivation of horses and sheep.
The minaret is the beautiful monument reflecting features of culture of Egypt. Decorated with inscriptions of 2 types – куфи and насхи, inimitable medallions and modelled сосулями, it, maybe, is work of the Moroccan masters. Al-Nasir actually is buried in Kalaun’s mausoleum, and the tomb constructed by it occupies it the descendant.
