Khan El-Khalili

Cairo Governorate, Egypt

Within this 14th-century souk nestled in the historic Islamic quarter, every facet you envision in a majestic bazaar awaits discovery: saffron and dried mint, treats steeped in syrup, intricate copperware, towering displays of melons, and the earthy delight of ful, mashed brown fava beans. Amidst the array, you’ll find not only precious gold and silver but also the familiar presence of unauthentic electronics. The souk, located at Sharia al-Muski on Sharia al-Muizz, presents an immersive glimpse into the splendor and diversity of this ancient market.
