Khan el-Khalili

once known as the Turkish bazaar in Egypt during the Ottoman period , is now usually just called the ' Khan ', and the names of it and Muski market are often used interchangeably to refer to either. Named for the large caravanserai , the market was built in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el -Khalili in the heart of the Fatimid City . Together with the market al- Muski west ,
they are one of the most important shopping districts of Cairo . But more than that , they represent the market tradition which established Cairo as a major center of commerce, and the Khan , one will still find foreign merchants . Perhaps, this
vary market was involved in the spice monopoly controlled by the Mamluks , which encouraged Europeans to seek new routes to the East and led Columbus , indirectly, to the discovery of America . During the first period , the market was also a center for subversive groups , often subject to raids before the Sultan Ghawri rebuilt much of the region in the early 16th century. Regardless, it was trade that made the early wealth of Cairo , even the time of the Babylon fort which was often a settlement of traders.

This market is located in a corner of a triangle of markets that go south to Bab Zuwayla and west of Azbakiyyah . The Khan is bordered to the south by al -Azhar Street in Egypt and on the west by the Muski market.

In a narrow street leading off Al - Badistand , we find the El- Fishawi Cafe, or Cafe of Mirrors , which was once a meeting place for local artists , and is always attended by Nobel Laureate Naguib Mahfouz, one of Egypt's mostwell-known authors . There are a number of canvas covered streets such as that shown at right .
