Almoravids Dome in Marrakesh

A city like Marrakesh, with its long distinctive history, hosts many several monuments. The oldest among them is the Almoravids Dome in Marrakesh. Established by Sultan Ali ibn Yusuf, the Almoravids Dome was constructed around the middle of the 12th dynasty.

Away from being the most ancient building to be surviving in Marrakesh, the Almoravids Dome has its own type of magic featured with simplicity in design and plain layout. Many tourists who travel to Morocco would pay the dome a visit.

Among the marvelous characteristics of Almoravids is their extensive stone decorations which they excelled to carry out. Their dome in Marrakesh is a rare example of this concept. This is because most of the establishments and buildings of Almoravids were demolished by Almohads, the dynasty which ruled over the Moroccan kingdom afterwards.
