Meknès, Morocco
A vast underground prison composed of three rooms.  Each is contains a series of arcades resting on pillars approximatle 1,40m by 3,46m, supporting lowered barrel vaults. Because of this similarity to the granary of Heri Souani, it is possible that its initial function was to store foodstuffs.
