Mosque-Madrasa of Emir Gani Bak in Bab Zuwayla in Cairo
The Madrasa of Emir Gani Bak situates in the area of Bab Zuwayla . It was established by Emir Gani Bak who was brought up by Sultan Barsbay, of the late Mamluk Period, who made him the Emir of Forty after one year of work and this raised many people's jealousy against him.
He was poisoned at the age of 25 and buried in the Northern Cemetery. The decorations of the façade of the Madrasa follow the austere Mameluk military architectural structure, but it is more elaborated than others of its period in the street. The building was renovated in 1896 and in 1990.
