Owner description: After the Muslims conquered Egypt in 641 AD, they built their city, Al-Fustat, on what is now the southern border of modern Cairo. Today, this section of the city contains many important sites including the Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Mosque of al-Azhar and the Khan al-Khalili market, which is considered the heart of this area.

“Travelling back to old days”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

If you want to smell the ancient age of Cairo, you must visit Islamic Cairo; you will wander of the great art and atmosphere only available in Cairo and shown all around in the building, lane, and alley, nowhere else. Incredible artwork, which last for such period and done by great artists without the technology of now, with narrow roads, Lane and alley but you enjoy the incredible climate without AC even in summer time, you feel comfort and flashback in old days, trip you will never regret.
