This was an overpowering experience. The architecture and the decorative manoevres in this Medressa were a sensory overdose. Every corner you look to, you will find colour, form, shape that will gratify your thirst for beauty

It costs 20 Dhs to enter... and it was full of people... Not much to see, not all that spectacular either.

Beautiful old Koran school (Medersa) with old tile work and beautiful engraved wooden doors and arches. It’s not big and you can only visit the court yard but it worthwhile. Entry is only 20 dirham pp.

This was the most delicate and precise carving of wood and plaster that can be found. It is small but is apparently very important in the world of Islamic architecture.
