Amir Taz Palace

Historic Building in Cairo

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. The palace is now used as a cultural centre but you're free to enter and view the salons.
