Eminent mosques of Egypt – al-Azkhar mosque
To the southwest from Medan el-Hussein the foot underpass conducts to a mosque of Egypt of al-Azkhar which name it is possible to translate as "radiant", "blossoming" or "brilliant". Based in 970 to a meeting after the termination of walls of fatimidsky al-Kakhiry, al-Azkhar applies for that being considered as the oldest institute in the world (this right challenges Kayrauin’s mosque in the Moroccan Fes). But in any case here already more than one thousand years al-Azkhar prepares students from all Muslim world, educating them which, despite Naser’s reforms, remains same what it was during a classical era of Islam. Mukavrina comprehensively study the Koran and the Islamic right (икх), logic, grammar and rhetoric, the main lines of culture of old Egypt, phases of a Muslim lunar calendar learn to count. The most part of training passes in listening of lectures, sitting in a circle (withers) at feet of the sheikh, and mechanical storing. But, having reached a certain level, students have an opportunity to enter conversation with teachers or to edify the younger. The main subject for many students is the city religion of Egypt.
What excursions to visit in Egypt: known cafe and workshops of jewellers
The Khan quite compact, it is limited by el-Hussein, Shary al-Muizz and Muska’s mosque, with 2 medieval lanes (Sikket al-Bades-tan and Sikket Khan el-Halili), conducting through internal building of quarter similar to a labyrinth. Behind the majority of benches workshops or warehouses are located. If you deliberate, what excursions to visit in Egypt, go here. Specialisation of separate parts of the market is still observed, though is not so strict, as in former times. Workshops of jewellers, goldsmiths and a bench of souvenirs and antiques are generally concentrated along streets which have kept some arches and walls since мамлюков. When you will be tired to wander around, dive into Fishavi’s through one of the passes departing from Muska or from the area. Here it is possible to get in though what season, but in particular it is romantic to choose rest in Egypt new year. This known cafe, which age is given out by plaster with spots from tobacco and the cracked gilt mirrors, was never closed, neither in the afternoon nor at night, in an extent more than 2 centuries. Very picturesque place where it is possible to savour mint tea to listen to the latest news and to test шиша. Surely visit this Egypt cafe.
Floor space of Egypt: markets of spices and aromas
Going to the South from Muska along Shary al-Muizz, you will get on Bitches al-Atta-rin, or the Market of spices where without considering some ordinary seasonings pounded dried fruit and flowers are on sale. If you wish to learn the prices for real estate in Egypt in this area, take an interest at locals. At the corner of the same street behind the vests hanged on boards and галабийя, there is a Madrasah of sultan al-Ashrafa Barsbey which has established the state monopoly for trade in spices and has raised thus funds for capture of Cyprus in 1426. Shariya Sanadiky (departs from Shary al-Muizz) will bring you on the Perfumery market – a dark, fragrant labyrinth which from time to time name Bitches el Sudan because the most part of aromas arrives from this country. If you go the 1st time to Egypt councils will not visit this market the superfluous. In last century the bedekerovsky guidebook of "Guide for travellers" also mentioned «tarry nuts of an unknown tree» and «badly tanned tiger skin» among the goods. Mamlyuksky sultans appointed mukhtasib for supervision of the prices, weight and quality of the goods. Possessing abilities to impose penalties and to subject to corporal punishments, it also was responsible for public morals – «allowing to enjoy that is correct, and forbidding unworthy». The same principles the main religion of Egypt keeps. 1st Lane departing on it is left from Shary Sanadiky, conducts up on a ladder from several steps in a tiny tupichok. This is Zukak al-Midakk, or Midakk Lane which was immortalised by Naguib Mahfouz in the novel of the same name, later here on its motives the film has been shot. The index on the street is not present, it is in tiny cafe (which simply not to behold). There you will ask, whether you wish it to photograph, – certainly, for a baksheesh.
