Starting in 1997, the national government carried out extensive renovations to the historical buildings, modern buildings, paving, and sewerage to turn the street into an "open-air museum". On April 24, 2008, Al-Muizz Street was rededicated as a pedestrian only zone between 8:00 am and 11:00 pm; cargo traffic will be allowed outside of these hours. Continue walking until arrive to Khan EL Khalili.

Khan el Khalili, once known as the Turkish bazaar during the Ottoman period, is now usually just called the 'Khan', and the name of it and the Muski market are often used interchangeably to mean either. The market was built in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili in the heart of the Fatimid City. Together with the al-Muski market to the west, they comprise one of Cairo's most important shopping areas. However, more than that they represent the market tradition which established Cairo as a major center of trade, and at the Khan, one will still find foreign merchants
