A Brief History
Khan El Khalili takes its name from the famous Khan El Khalili market in Cairo, Egypt. Dating back to the 15th century, Khan El Khalili has been and remains a major trade center where many cultures come together. This historic market has a rich history of pride and craftsmanship that has always catered to tourists and businesses. When you enter the market you are immediately taken back to a time when there were camels and horses ruled the streets. The air is filled with spices, incense, perfumes and market food. Craftsmen that have passed their trade down for generations line the narrow and intricate streets. Preservationists and historians have committed to making sure the history of the market remains intact for its many visitors. Many streets and buildings have been restored to show off their elaborate artwork and design. Islamic and Ottoman motifs, as well as some French influence can be found everywhere. Ancient and contemporary minarets echo the call to prayer all over the city during prayer time. Khan El Khalili in Egypt is truly a sight and city to behold.
