Al-Sabun Khan, located in al-Madina bazaar, was built by the Mamluk Sultanate representative, Prince Izdamer in the late 15th century. The khan is unique in its intricate ornamentation, both geometric and organic. It is a preserved example of the detailed craftsmanship of the traditional Aleppine builder.
