The narrow small street curls further on the North from Kait-bey’s mausoleum and passes by a residential building (at the left), which Kait-bey in due time has transferred on donative to provide the income on the content of the construction and workplaces for poor relatives. Similar gifts could not be confiscated, unlike own property мамлюков and dealers from which means construction of the mausoleum of sultan al-Ashrafa Barsbey (once a day 9:00-20:00), located in 200 m behind a structure was partially financed. A basis of a complex was at present destroyed hanka, later, when the construction constructed by Barsbey about Khan el-Halili found as insufficiently suitable for burial of the sultan, the ensemble has been added with the mausoleum and a mosque with madrasah (1432) . If nearby there will be an inspector, ask it to lift a mat, hiding marble inlaid floor of a mosque, pay attention and on magnificent a kifepru-minbar. In a northern part over Barsbey’s grave the big dome rises, marble кенотасултана and the niche-mikhrab laid out by pearls softly shine the sunshine passing through windows relating to later time with stained-glass windows. The carving on a stone on an external surface of a dome belongs to a transitional step between raneshny acute-angled ornaments and smooth patterns of the mausoleum of Kait-bey.
Barsbey was that sultan who has bought Kait-bey on below cost price. It has been bought in Damascus for eight hundred dinars, but «has been returned to the dealer because of turbidity in one of his blue eyes». Unlike other sultans who were enriched, exploiting national economy, Barsbey tried to pay мамлюкам quite often. The board of this person, affable in the address and not touching alcohol (1422-1438), was characterised «by the greatest tranquillity and the low prices». In fifty metres further the next beautiful carved dome crowning a tomb to Ghana of the Tank, favourite Barsbey which mosque costs about the Market of dealers in saddles down the street is visible.
Most starenky of a sin of tremendous funeral complexes can be found in 50 m to the North, on the submultiple party of the area through which there passes the equal road to Shary Salakh Salem. Recognised on the double domes and minarets, the mausoleum of sultan Barkuk (once a day 9:00-20:00) was the first tomb of the governor on a cemetery which was earlier a place of burial of sufiysky sheikhs. The unpretentious courtyard is filled dry, decrepit тамарисками, but the proud carved domes towering over Lebanon, appropriate greatness to all ensemble. Barkuk and his descendant Farag are buried in a northern tomb, his daughter Shiriz and Shakra – in southern, in the same place, in a corner, their true nurse lies. Before these tremendous constructions are located a mashrabiya with the ornaments similar to patterns in madrasah of Barkuk «between 2 palaces». Carved a kafedshch-minbar it is presented by Kait-bey there was no time a monastery existing here суфиев, ladders in a northwest corner of a yard conduct on the top floor, in long ago thrown cells of dervishes.
The complex has been erected Faragom who has transferred here a body of own father from madrasah on Shary al-Muizz. Фараг has been crowned at the age of 10 years, will dethrone after 13 years of civil contentions and eventually it is killed in Syria; taking in all this attention, it is surprising that the mausoleum after all has been completed in 1411.
On the way back from the Northern cemetery you can pass by Barsbey al-Bagasi and Amir Souleymane’s less considerable tombs or by the tombs of the princess Tulbey and Umm Anouck located closer to Women of al-Gu-riyab and remarkable with the highway.
