Khan el-Khalili



Khan el-Khalili - An excursion in Cairo, Egypt
Khan el-Khalili, once known as the Turkish bazaar during the Ottoman period. Named for the great Caravansary, the market was built in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili in the heart of the Fatimid City. Together with the al-Muski market to the west, they comprise one of Cairo's most important shopping areas. But more than that, they represent the market tradition which established Cairo as a major center of trade, and at the Khan, one will still find foreign merchants. Perhaps, this vary market was involved in the spice monopoly controlled by the Mamluks, which encouraged the Europeans to search for new routes to the East. You can find almost everything in Khan el-Khalili but you must negotiate about the prices.
