This Memluk palace is located at the beginning of AL Saufeya street that takes you to Bab Zuweile. It is a path should be walked to involve Medieval Cairo and authentic Cairo lifestyle.

This isn't on the usual tourist trail, but if you want to get off the beaten path, this is a beautiful example of a Mamluk palace. As of November 2016, there was a Mamluk exhibit and an exhibit of paintings ongoing. No fee to enter. Restrooms available on site.

CDF.gov.eg organise regular events in Prince Taz palace specially in Ramadan. Most events are concerts, performances or traditional products bazar. The palace reflects the typical Islamic mamluk architecture. In addition, the neighborhood has several monuments from the same era.

This site is entirely free and open to the public: there is no fee or expected baksheesh. The guards at the entrance may ask to check your bags, but that's about it.
