Souk al Khamis, le marché du jeudi, est à quelques centaines de mètres du musée en plein air connu pour son obélisque.
S'y trouve un temple de Ramsès II, qui a été découvert, si j'ai bien compris, lors de la construction des bâtiments pour ce souk.
 
J'ai eu la chance de pouvoir visiter les fouilles, il y a (déjà) plusieurs années, bien avant le début de la révolution.
