Khan el-Khalili was known as the Turkish bazaar during the Ottoman period.  The market was built in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili in the heart of the Fatimid City.  Khan el-Khalili and the al-Muski market comprise one of Cairo's most important shopping areas.  They represent the market tradition which established Cairo as a major center of trade.  The market was involved in the spice monopoly controlled by the Mamluks.  During its early period, the market was also a center for subversive groups, often subject to raids before the Sultan Ghawri rebuilt much of the area in the early 16th century.
