Brothers of Joseph

 

This mashhad, now in ruins, was probably built in the Fatimid period, and was said to house the remains of the brothers of Joseph. Only the main dome is now intact. Beneath it is a triple mihrab surrounded with Fatimid-style calligraphy and decoration. Some evidence of a burial site is extant just to the west of the dome. The site is located in the Southern Cemetery in Cairo just north of the Lu'lu' Mosque.
