- Khusru Pahsa was one of Egypt's viceroys appointed by the Ottoman Sultanate in 1535 AD, during the reign of Sultan Soleiman Pasha. Facing the entrance of the Complex of Sultan Qualaun, the Sabil occupies a prominent location, masking a portion of the façade of Al Salih Nagm el Din's Madrassa, extending from the minaret to the mausoleum. Its construction was funded by his wife, Shagarat el Dorr. It is highly valued in the architectural sense as the second freestanding Sabil in Egypt after the Sultan Quait Bey one.
