Amir Taz Palace
Amir Taz Palace information
Walking west along busy Sharia al-Saliba eventually leads to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun. A short detour north on Sharia Suyufiyya brings you to this restored home of one of Sultan al-Nasir Muhammad’s closest advisers, who later controlled the throne through Sultan Hassan. Now used as a cultural centre, the home is not as extensive as Beit el-Suhaymi, but admission is free, and it’s less cluttered than the Gayer-Anderson Museum.
