Al-Qatta'i: Al-Qatta'i was the short-lived Tulunid capital of Egypt, founded by Ahmad ibn Tulun in the year 868 CE. Al-Qatta'i was located immediately to the northeast of the previous capital, Al-Askar, which in turn was adjacent to the settlement of Fustat. All three settlements were later incorporated into the city of al-Qahira, founded by the Fatimids in 969 CE. The city was razed in the early 10th century, CE., and the only surviving structure is the Mosque of Ibn Tulun.
