Video: Al Darb al-Ahmar, Cairo Tourist Routes

Between 1998 to 2012, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture restored eight major monuments in Al Darb al-Ahmar, including a 1.2 kilometre stretch of Cairo’s historic Ayyubid Wall, with the aim to turn the district into a major destination for visitors. With the on-going rehabilitation of the 14th century Maridani Mosque a ninth monument will now be added. The route that AKTC has developed for visiting these historic sites not only covers the monuments, but also the myriad crafts of the district, as well as Darb al Ahmar’s living culture. This film offers a walkthrough of Al Darb al-Ahmar, Cairo, and the restored monuments. Source: Archnet

  1. We the entire humanity are proud that Aga Culture heritage’s for restoration buildings has done tremindous work, for protecting the past architrect heritages of our history of humanity it will help for businesses of eco-tourism in the marginal comunities in the area for their livelihood. This is the Fatmies idea from Holy Qur’an that “all human being ‘s are created from one soul” without cred and cride Aga Khan Culture is doing for our human being protecting our civilisations of the past for better future with hope and unity ” Peace is God and God is peace.”
