It is a very busy area especially during the holidays and is a popular meeting place both day and night.
During religious festivals it is crowded and there will be bright lights and music.
The first buildings you see are Madrassa and Mausoleum of Qala'un on the left side of Sharia al-Muizz li-Din Allah.
The Madrassa and Mausoleum of Qala'un is the earliest building in the area, built around 1279 AD and probably the most interesting to visit.
The entrance is through a high and wide carved portal that leads to a vaulted opening then onto a large open courtyard that was built that way to attract customers.
This mosque is not accessible to non-Muslims and it is one of the most sacred Islamic sites in the country and in the whole Middle East.
The building that you see today was was built in 1870 and it is said that the head of Ibn al-Hussein, Mohammed the Prophet’s grandson, is buried here.
The area south of Sabil-Kuttab of Abdel Katkhuda is known as Bein al-Qasreen (between the Palaces) and at one time there were two great palaces here.
This is quite an impressive area with its minarets, domes and towering facades.Al-Hakim was the sixth Fatmid ruler of Egypt and by all accounts was rather eccentric and at one point he declared himself a god.One day Al-Hakim rode off to al-Muqattam hills and never returned.The narrow alleyways of shops twisting this way and that give visitors an insight into what medieval markets must have looked like.
