Lonely Planet review

Another of the doomed sultan’s legacies lies 100m east of Sharia al-Muizz, halfway to Al-Azhar. Similar to the Wikala al-Bazara, north of Midan al-Hussein, but more sympathetically restored, this wikala’ s upper rooms are artists’ ateliers while the former stables are craft shops. The courtyard serves as a theatre for the free Sufi dance performances by Al-Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe, which is a good time to see the interior, rather than pay the admission fee.
