The workshops in Khan El-Khalili, Cairo are the most famous hand-making brass and copper workshop allover Egypt. Khan El- Khalili street is the most historic neighborhood in Cairo. The market dates back to the 14th century when Emir Dajaharks Al-Khalili built a large market complex on the site of the Za’afran Tomb, which had been the burial place of the Fatimid rulers of Egypt. This construction was part of the process of rebuilding started under Sultan Barquq (ruled 1382-1399) to help the city recover from the ravages of the Black Death throughout the 13th and 14th centuries.
