  Khan Al Khayyatin

Khan Al Khayyatin is the taylor's khan. It's a 14th century Mamluk khan built in 1341. This khan comes in the shape of a longpassageway with tall arches and vaults, and it opens up to the sky in its middle. It is no longer a taylor's khan only, although you can still have your clothes cut and sewn there (you really should see those old sewing machines! Beautiful!). The stalls and shops also sell dry goods, spices and coffee. A beautiful smalling place.
