A must see tourist attraction for the non tourist types. This sufi meets folk dance performance is held 3 times a week at the Wikalet El-Ghoury in the heart of Islamic Cairo.
History says that Sultan Qonsuah Al Ghoury was the sultan in the Memluk Dynasty. What is the theater today, housed merchants, markets & the Sultans family many generations ago. Apparently this building has been standing since the 15th century.
The performance is held every Monday, Wednesday & Saturday evenings. Entrance is completely free of charge and doors open at 7:30pm. I suggest you get there early as it tends to fill up quite quickly. The performance begins at 8:30pm and lasts for approximately One and a half hours.
