A bazaar from the medi-evil times, it was a great experience to come here and haggle. I found the sellers were not as persistent in selling things compared to other bazaars in Egypt, but one guy did follow me for a few minutes to try to sell me a watch. The spices here are very unique, should buy some. The other goods are also very cheap.

Address: From Al Azher st.,Cairo
