Barkuks madrasah and hanka. Hankakh is numerous monasteries in Egypt

Very injured at earthquake, but at present the Madrasahs restored in all the beauty and hanka of sultan Barkuk are familiar to us on the drawings which not once were reproduced in the nineteenth century of Owen Carter (on them al-Nasira located opposite to a mosque is represented also sabil-kuttab Ismail pasha,). These structures – the next centre of tourism in Egypt. The wide facade with malekhanky niches reminds Kalaun’s madrasah though the dome of a complex of Barkuk (1384-1386) is slightly higher. The complex is allocated with also high minaret by which it is possible to rise (at the second door on the right after an entrance and later through a roof) and to take pleasure in a quite good panorama of Islamic Cairo. If you have got the 1st time to Egypt, councils here will be not necessary – from a tremendous picture grasps spirit! However, it is excellent at all this to have in a stock a torch, because some sites of a spiral ladder the very dark. Barkuk was the first sultan from mamlyukov-Burdzhi (1382-1398) which has seized power in the way of intrigues and murders. His name meaning in Arab "plum" (gods of Egypt names had where blagozvuchny), is written on a ledge in the centre of the doors trimmed with bronze behind which there is the vaulted corridor conducting in an open yard. Lebanon (madrasah sanctuaries, to the right of an entrance) has a fine bluish-golden ceiling which is supported by porphyritic columns of times of Pharaohs. Above there are cells of sufiysky monks which once lived in ханкахе (a monastery in Egypt). To the North from киблы, in the magnificent mausoleum with a dome which arch is supported by gilt sails, there is a tomb of the daughter of Barkuk.

At present the very few organise rounds from Kazakhstan to Egypt. And we do it!
