The most beautiful funeral monuments of Cairo erected mamlyukami-burdzhi in the XIV-XVI centuries, are located around the Northern cemetery. The majority of tourists which venture to pass here from Shary Salakh Salem, are satisfied with survey of the 3rd main objects plus of that comes across between them, having spent for it hour or about that.
Not including trips by a taxi (say that Karafat al-Sharkiyyakh – «East cemetery» in Arab), is necessary the best way for you to reach there – to pass on foot from al-Azkhar. Walk down the street Women al-Guriyab by buildings of university and up on a slope before her connection with Salakh Salem will take about fifteen minutes. Though among the next mausoleums there are Anuk and Tulbey’s tombs it is, maybe, better to pass 250 m on the North on the highway to Dirasa (where it is possible to reach also on the minibus No. 102 from Medan Tahrir or on the minibus No. 10 from Ramses and Atab), and later to turn on the East to a cemetery. In this case you will begin survey with Kait-bey’s mausoleum, the elegant dome and which minaret are clearly visible from afar. It is possible to reach Dirasa also on a share taxi from Medan Ramses and when the new line of the underground eventually will open, there will be a metro station.
