PhotoPOSTcard: El Badi Palace Refelction

The El Badi Palace in Marrakesh, Morocco was built in the late 16th century by Sultan Ahmad Al-Mansur, and was supposedly built and decorated with the most expensive materials of its time. The complex is believed to have had as many as 360 rooms built around a large central courtyard that contained a large pool. Subsequent rulers from other dynasties later stripped the palace of all its grandeur, so that today it sits as a romantic looking ruin that is home to storks and tourists.

Thanks for visiting.
