Samarat Khan Al Khalili – Celebration of Egyptian Culture in Riyadh

The Egyptian culture is a wonderfully complex entity. It expands over thousands of years, most of which have been recorded through their pictorial language of hieroglyphs. For millennia, Egypt maintained a strikingly unique, complex and stable culture that influenced later cultures of Europe. After the Pharaonic era, the country, itself came under the influence of Hellenism, which is Greek culture, for a time Christianity and later, Islamic culture.

Now, the Egyptian culture goes hand in hand with the Islamic culture as well.

Khan Al Khalili is a major souq in the Islamic district of Cairo. The bazaar district is one of Cairo’s main attractions for tourists and Egyptians alike.

The site of Khan Al Khalili was originally the site of the mausoleum known as the Saffron Tomb, which was the burial site of the Fatimid caliphs. Today, however, it is mainly occupied by Egyptians rather than foreign merchants and shop holders but is significantly geared towards tourists.

Shops typically sell souvenirs, antiques and jewellery, but many traditional workshops continue to operate in the surrounding area and the adjoining goldsmiths’ souq, for example, is still important for locals.
