Wekalet El Ghoury, Cairo Reviews

  • The show is very good and the music is fantastic. There are no settings. The earlier you come the better. Don't be shocked if some workers asked you to change your place to seat their friends. Just don't listen to them. Before the start of the show you will see people go to the front and sit on the floor.

  • An ancient market now it is a visiting place and there is a theater. Altanoura show has a performance 3 days per week. Tickets for foreigners. A wonderful performance.

  • This place was made by Sultan Al Ghori before he was chosen by Memloks to rule Egypt for trading purposes. Egypt was a hub receiving goods and crops from Asia, Turkey, Syria, Arabian peninsula and Yemen and distribute it to Africa. The place is built of four floors; the ground floor was for storing the goods, the second floor was for trading agreements, the third floor was for the madrassa “school” for the visitors and trader’s children and the fourth floor was for traders convenience and housing. Nowadays, it is not used for this purpose anymore. Ground floor is used for folkloric dancing in certain days, second floor for clerks of ministry of culture, third and fourth floors are given to arts scholars. The folkloric shows are very famous and landmark of the place.

  • A fantastic and wonderful show...one hour and a half of colorful scenes...dedicated and passionnante dancers with no particular choregraphy...its worth the fatigue to reach there...the chaos at the entrance the people pushing you...and certainly the 75 pounds....2 months ago it was 45 pounds and november 2017 it was 25 pounds...still it's a lovely show

  • Nice tannoura show. Folkloric dancing and using ancient drums and rababa musical instruments used since 1000 years. Must watch
