Tarbooshes receive the best hotels of Egypt and tourists
In olden days Shary al-Muizz, the street between Gury’s buildings, was hidden and represented the Silk market where carpets were on sale. Directly it has served as nature for David Roberts’s eminent drawings. At present it is possible to find without troubles round to Egypt with arrival on the most picturesque markets of Cairo. But now the shops located on Shary al-Muizz, trade generally in household products and are even less aimed at tourists, than Khan el-Halili. Called in honour of the victorious fatimidsky Caliph, the street was the main artery of Islamic Cairo: it passed from Northern gate to the Citadel, incorporating to other basic road – Darb al-Akhmar at Bab Zuveyla. On the traditions, Shary al-Muizz each site has own name which usually occurs from the product which was on sale here. On its West side, less than in 50 m to the South from al-Guri mosque, there is the last workshop in Cairo on manufacturing of tarbooshes which receive purely the best hotels of Egypt together with tourists. to five-stars hotels and tourists. Available there are products various characteristics, the cheapest go for only 10 pounds. The tarboosh, or тарбуш фасси, at first was a sign of fidelity of the Ottoman Empire, and late began to designate secular, aimed at the West эфенди contrary to traditsionalist carrying turbans. At Nasser tarbooshes have got out of fashion, them branded as a sign of an old regime. Now the main owners of tarbooshes are waiters and the service personnel, and demand for them is so small that art of production of these products is doomed to slow disappearance. Therefore, solving a question what to bring from Egypt, consider purchase option directly these rare headdresses.
Approximately in 200 m to the South you will see «The dealer in fruit», or Pha-kakhani mosque. Its doors decorated with arabesques, is the only thing that remained from a structure of the XII century after reconstruction of 1735. The house of Ga-mal ad-Din al-Dakhabi located close (No. 6, Shariya Hushkadan) which also call Hareth Hoche Kadam, was housing of the head dealer in gold in Cairo XVII century. Its great interior still is in a restoration condition, but it, after all, is open for guests (once a day with 9:00 till 21:00, entrance cost – 10 pounds, for students – 5 pounds) and can повытрепываться charming stone facing and decorative wood ceilings, in particular in a portico of the second floor leaving in a courtyard. Taking in attention historical value of this object if you have decided to remove to rent the house (Egypt it is rich on constructions of the most different eras), hardly to them will appear the building to which has the zolototorgovets possessed…
It is necessary to become populated in the best hotels of Egypt. Far away from public baths…
To the South from a mosque Shary al-Muizz Fakakhani Street bends around Ottoman sabil-kuttab Tusun pashi with a facade in style of rococo (1820) which is decorated with shod images of the sun, garlands and branches. Later the street passes between 2 buildings which adjoin gate of Bab Zuveyla which big silhouette is visible ahead. To the left of you before викала with lattices-mashrabiya (near jewelry store) there is a door conducting in al-Sukanya Hammam XVIII of century – the building of ordinary baths which now is reconstructing and consequently is closed for public. On fire which water for baths heated up, also prepared фуль медаммес (a dish from beans) for a breakfast for locals. The traditions of Egypt connected with visit of such baths, were is described by Flaubert in 1839: «You order a bath (5 francs including masseurs, a tube, coffee, a sheet and a towel) and enjoy society of the young man in one of rooms». Flaubert described masseurs so:« naked келлаа…, which twist your body as the embalmers preparing a mummy for burial». The reputation of baths as institutions for homosexuals has remained and to this day therefore booking of hotels in Egypt far away from them is recommended to tourists. Though there is a hope that recovery of this and 3rd others to boors in Islamic Cairo will mark revival of their popularity at fans of simply hot steam.
"Red" mosque of Egypt – a haven of starenky scientists
Al-Muayada mosque which is known also as «A red mosque» for colour of own interior, is at the other side of the street, on a place of the former prison where her founder has once been placed for plot against sultan Barkuk. Stirred up by louses and fleas, it has sworn to make here «a sacred place for preparation of scientists» if comes to power. When it left, 40 000 dinars have been allocated for a construction of a mosque (1415-1422). And here cheap rest in Egypt costs even less! To enter into a building it is possible through a devyatiyarusny portal with сосулями and a red-turquoise frame round a bronze door, but now it is closed on repair. About a corridor there is a mausoleum where in кенотафах the beseeming sizes al-Muayad and his descendant are buried. The Kufichesky inscription on Al-Muayad’s monument says:« Only the God-fearing will stay among gardens and fountains: enter there in the world and tranquillity». It seems that the inscription speaks about a mosque courtyard where palm trees open-air grow. Behind the protected roof the part of a yard has located the carpeted sanctuary, and further – кибла with a niche, decorated with marble and a mosaic. Minarets of a mosque of Egypt are built on over towers of gate of Bab Zuveyla located in the neighbourhood. One more old bath – Hammam al-Muayad – can be found, having passed on the narrow lane behind a mosque, but it is for a long time in the destroyed condition and hardly will be restored soon.
