Muhammad Ali Street is a very noisy and crowded street but is best known as the place where you can buy musical instruments. Earlier, only handmade instruments were made and sold but today, mostly imported instruments can be found here. Named after Muhammad Ali Pasha, the famous ruler of Egypt, this street was associated with many artists and groups like the Hasaballah. Although, few remain and you will find a few instrument makers like the makers of Oud, an Arabic guitar.
