|Type||Mausoleum, sabil, kuttab|
The Mausoleum of Tarabay al-Sharifi is a late Mamluk funerary complex in Cairo comprising the tomb of amir Tarabay al-Sharifi as well as a sabil and kuttab (primary school), built in 1503–1504. It is located in the Bab al-Wazir Cemetery on the edge of the Darb al-Ahmar district of historic Cairo. An adjacent gate gives access from this district to the rest of the cemetery. It is considered a good example of late Mamluk architecture, combining artistic and ornamental sophistication with practical functionality in the arrangement of its different elements.
Also adjacent and attached to the same site is the ribat and mausoleum of Azdumur, built in the same period. Azdumur was another mamluk purchased by Qaytbay, though it is unclear what relationship existed, if any, between him and Tarabay.
