The Menara gardens

Marrakech
The Menara gardens are one of the oldest gardens in the Muslim West, the beginning of the works started by the reign of the Almohad Sultan bin Abd al-Mu'min Ali Al-Komy, he prepared the pond to train the army to swim before crossing to Andalusia. At the period of Alawites, they built the Royal Pavilion during the reign of Sultan Sidi Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman. The pond depth is two meters and a half, the length is of 200 meters, and 160 meters width. The water was brought from the Atlas Mountains through two entrances and discharged to irrigate more than 1,000 olive trees.
In order to irrigate the Menara Gardens, they used the traditional systems of bringing water to the surface of the earth (used especially in arid and semi-arid regions), and rely on the channels under the floor used to divert water from the ground and transport it to the surface of the earth. This way the water can be available for fields and houses.
The Royal building is consisted of two floors and is topped with a traditional pyramid shaped roof covered with green tiles, while the first floor is composed of four columns and high open space leads to a balcony overlooking the water pond. The second floor offers the best view to the pond and Garden.
The place becomes a very hot spot for people looking to enjoy the calm and remember the History of the good times.
