The complex was completed by Farag ibn Barquq, son of Sultan
who was the first Burgi
Mamluk, in 1411.
By that time the northern cemetery was nothing but a stretching
desert and Farag took the decision to develop it meeting a
wish of his father.
To the north of the complex lies the tomb chamber in which
Sultan Barquq and his Son Abdel Aziz are buried. In another
chamber lies bodies of some female members of the family.
Farag himself is not buried in the complex he built, as he
was killed in Syria at the age of 23 in 1412 and was buried
The complex is a landmark and deserves a visit.
