Beybarsa al-Gashankira – a starenky monastery in Egypt
Again having entered into Islamic Cairo according to Shary Bab al-Nasr, you will get to a quarter el-Gamaliya. Its name occurs from the old camel road, Shary Gamaly from which lanes of quarter disperse. In one of them in 1911 the Nobel winner, writer Naguib Mahfouz, the literary Egypt which has glorified for the whole world was born the creativity. Information for the tourists wishing in allowed time to examine as much as possible memorable places, such: to the right of you there is an impressing building of a caravanserai of the XV century – пикала Kait-bey, – seriously injured during earthquake of 1993, but kept a huge part of a facade. Such caravanserais that is absolutely natural, were under construction near city gate, and about the malekhanky dome mausoleum on Shary Galaly’s other party it is possible to behold three more викалы (from last of which there were only gate). Behind these викал costs Beybarsa al-Gashankira hanka with a being remembered bulbar dome and a low huge minaret (it is possible to get here once a day with 13:00 to 19. 00; an entrance free, but from you expect a baksheesh). This Hankakh based in 1310 – nearly the oldest sufiysky monastery in Egypt. An entrance in it through a "protecting" corridor which does not allow street noise to get into a courtyard. Though the yard is not decorated neither a tile, nor a mosaic, it does not make unduly severe memoirs thanks to variety of windows with the ridge, bent or dvukhskatny lancet arches in the spirit of an era Fatimidov. Al-Gashankira grave (away from a corridor) in comparison with a yard looks very zrelishchno: sunshine fall through stained-glass windows on the walls inlaid with marble and кенотаф, standing up for lattices-mashrabiya from a dark tree. In a word, irrespective of, how many there is a rest in Egypt, if you have got to these places, take pleasure in a being remembered show! By the way, only one year which has stayed by the sultan, Beybars al-Gashankir ("Taster") distinguishing it from Beybarsa al-Bundukdari ("Arbaletchik"), his more powerful predecessor has received the nickname.
The intimate atmosphere Egipeta in Musafirkhan’s palace
On the contrary ханкаха at the corner of al-Asfur Darb Street there is sabres Kitus constructed in 1630. As well as other part of the street, it now with love restore, but for public it is closed. Having promoted on 100 m on the South on Shary Gamaly, you will pass by destroyed викалы, the mosque of the XV century constructed over shops (which rent provides the maintenance of a mosque), and after pair more of temples. To a meeting after that curtail on it is left to al-Tablavi Darb Lane which goes round a high stone wall, and you will see of what Egypt – Musafirkhan’s palace by right could be proud. In this semi-thrown building of the XVIII century (хедив Ismail here was born), times exposed to partial restoration, the mashrabiya, decorative ceilings, a fountain in a hall of receptions and the peace atmosphere which is broken from time to time by guests have remained fine. Though the palace is still closed for public, it is possible to test to find for the watchman who for a small payment will deign to pass the guest inside. And if you have caught the cheapest permits to Egypt, but more cash, the sum of a baksheesh have taken with itself and will absolutely seem to the malekhanky.
Having come back to the main street, you will find out that to the South it becomes already and shares on some lanes. To specify the exact direction it is heavy, but if you turn on a fork on the right and will pass the gate similar on medieval, will get on the square behind el-Hussein’s mosque on which there are the benches trading in a steel breakage and scales. To you they it is absolute without need because to bring from Egypt an unclear piece of bronze or aluminium it would be cheerful…
