Cairo’s largest souk—a term for marketplace derived from the Arabic word "sūḳ"—Khan el-Khalili is home to endless rows of glowing brass lights, alabaster vases, brightly-hued spices, and woven rugs. Set in the city’s historic centre, Khan el-Khalili’s ancient walls and arches were originally constructed as part of a mausoleum known as the Saffron Tomb in 970 AD.
