The Khayrbek Complex
About The Khayrbek Complex
This is a collection of buildings that is made up of a mosque, the sharia street At-tabbanah, and a tomb. It was built by Emir Khayrbek who ruled Aleppo while Sultan al-Ghouri was the leader. He was the previously named emir who betrayed al-Ghouri in the Marj Dabiq battle that was fought in 1516. When Selim I, the new Ottoman ruler returned to Egypt, Khayrbek came back with him and was made the governor of Egypt.
Apart from the mausoleum, a couple of other buildings such as various Otoman houses and the Alin Aq palace (erected in the 13th century) can be found all linked together in the area.
