The whole experience is unique since you see the mixed islamic art in one place along with antiques and accessories with Arabic style you can buy. I visited this place for two... More

One of the best places I ever been in Cairo. You enter the street and you already feel you are in the old era of Fatimid Egypt. A must-go place.

It is not a fancy street but it is really historical where you can discover the fine Islamic art. Well worth a visit, and only minutes away from the Khan khalili Market.Try and go at night to see all the buildings lite up. Its a walk though time for sure.

Go and enjoy walking among the old architecture and smell the fragrant of history!....but avoid going there during the official holidays and week ends (it became so crowded).

Go there to discover how cairo was looks before I prefer to go there after midnight It's magical time there Little people so you can enjoy the atmosphere Nice views with little lights But go there with groups and let Egyptians deal with sales men if you want to buy something
