Islamic Cairo (Qahirat al-Maez) is a part of central Cairo around the old walled city and around the Citadel of Cairo which is characterized by hundreds of mosques, tombs, madrasas, mansions, caravanserais, and fortifications dating from the Islamic era.[1] In 1979, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed Historic Cairo a World Cultural Heritage site, as "one of the world's oldest Islamic cities, with its famous mosques, madrasas, hammers and fountains and the new centre of the Islamic world, reaching its golden age in the 14th century.

This street has authentic Cairo feeling in it. Shops, old mosques, old schools and complexes, houses, markets, and all life features are in this open museum. The street was built as part of the old city of AlQAhira around a thousand years ago at the time of the Khalif El-Muizz Lden Ellah Al-Fatimi.

You will explore the old gates and walls of the town, the old mosques and houses, the copper market, the lemon and olive market, and get inside the great mosque of Al-Hakim.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Bab al-Futuh, 154 Al Moez Ldin Allah Al Fatmi 154 المعز لدين الله الفاطمي, Cairo 11511 Egypt

Bab al Futuh (Conquest Gate) is one of three remaining gates in the walls of the Old City of Cairo, Egypt. It was finished in the year 1087 and faces north. It stands at the northern end of Muizz Street. The other two remaining gates are Bab al-Nasr (Victory Gate) in the North and Bab Zuwayla (Gate of Zuwayla) in the south.

The gate was part of fortification built by Commander/Vizier Badr al-Jamali of Fatimid Imam/caliph Mustansir. Its rounded towers were a stronger defense than the square towers of Bab al-Nasr (another Old City gate, just to the east). They had shafts for pouring boiling water or burning oil on attackers, and arrow slits. The gate is covered in vegetal and geometric motifs.

Pass By: Al-Hakim Mosque, Cairo Egypt

The Mosque of al-Hakim (Masjid al-Ḥākim bi Amr Allāh), nicknamed Al-Anwar 'the Illuminated', is a major Islamic religious site in Cairo, Egypt. It is named after Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah (985–1021), the sixth Fatimid caliph and 16th Ismaili Imam.

The mosque was originally built as an enclosure by the Fatimid vizier Gawhar Al-Siqilli (c. 928–992), but was incorporated into the extended fortifications built by Badr al-Jamali. It consists of an irregular rectangle with four arcades surrounding the courtyard. An unusual feature is the monumental entrance with its projecting stone porch. It is located in Islamic Cairo, on the east side of Muizz Street, just south of Bab Al-Futuh (the northern gate).

Pass By: Qalawun Complex, El-Gamaleya, Qism El-Gamaleya, Cairo 11511 Egypt

The Qalawun Complex was built over the ruins of the Fatimid Palace of Cairo, with several halls in the Palace. It was sold to several people until it was finally bought by the Sultan Qalawun in 1283 AD. The structure resides in the heart of Cairo, in the Bayn al-Qasrayn, and has been a center for important religious ceremonies and rituals of the Islamic faith for years, stretching from the Mamluk dynasty through the Ottoman Empire.
