Fodor's Expert Review Wikala al-Ghuri

Islamic Cairo South: al-Azhar to Bab Zuwayla Dance

This venue, built in the early 16th century as an inn for traders on the caravan routes, offers fantastic whirling dervish and Arabic music performances. Shows are Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 7:30 pm in winter and 8 pm in summer but there are occasional late starts due to blackouts. Shows may be canceled due to low numbers, so be sure to call ahead.
