Ibn Tulunas mosque and quarter of Sayid Zeynab Dom Geyera-Anderson

From an external yard – эияда – ibn Tuluna’s mosques the index directs you to Geyera-Anderson’s house (once a day 8:30-16:30; an entrance of 30 pounds, for students – 15 pounds), known also as Beyt al-Kritilya («The krityanka house») which adjoins a southeast corner of a mosque.
Geyer-Anderson was the retired English major who in the 1930-1940th years has returned two houses, dated XVI and XVIII centuries, and has filled them with east antiques. Among other pictures there is Geyera-Anderson’s self-portrait in a headdress of Pharaohs. Excursions on the house (two structures are connected by transition on the fourth floor) carry out fine inspectors. There are Persian and Chinese halls, the Hall of queen Anna, also surprising bedroom for the guests, called Damask on place of production of wood panels decorating it. Ladies can slip through disguised дулап (wall buffet) in the closed gallery leaving on саламлик as it was accepted in olden days. It is most beautiful of the halls which have remained in Islamic Cairo for reception of guests – with a fountain adorned with a ceiling and pillows, covered kilimy. Here meeting and murder scenes from the film about James Bond «The spy who loved me» were shot.
