At the point when the Fatimid tradition vanquished Egypt in 969 AD, they developed another capital north of the current city to fill in as their authoritative focus. Islamic Cairo is the memorable center of the city. While it is never again the focal point of Cairo, Islamic Cairo remains a living indication of the city's past. This new city, named Al-Qahira which means The Vanquisher in English, gave the cutting edge city its name.
In spite of the fact that Al-Qahira was loaded with castles and regulatory structures when it was first developed, the general population of Cairo moved into the walled city amid a twelfth-century attack and they never left. A large portion of the old city's dividers have since a long time ago disintegrated, yet there are several landmarks and delightful mosques as yet coating the memorable veins of Al-Qahira.
