Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail
Meknes, Morocco
"Royal funeral compound, south of the Dar al Kebira, in a site chosen by Sultan Mulay Ismail, because it was the tomb of a local saint, Sidi Abdal Rahman al Majddhub,. Constructed by Moulay Ismail (1645-1727), altered by his son, sultan Mulay Ahmed al-Dhahbi (1677-1729).  Like the earlier Sa'adian tombs, Marrakesh, the design is Andalusian/Maghrebi."
