The Bou Inania Madrassa in Fes

By Seif Kamel
   Fes would be an amazing destination for those who are
fond of Islamic monuments. The city quite a diversified
group of various Islamic establishments. There is also for
example Al Atarein Mosque that is located to the North of
Al Qarawien Mosque.
   One of the most elegant historical attractions in Fes is the
Bou Inania Madrassa that was constructed in around the
middle of the 14 th century. It was established by Abou El
Inan Al Mariny who belonged to the Marinid dynasty.
The mosque and Madrasa, or Islamic teachings’ schools
are the best examples of the architecture of that period of
time. The mosque is featured with its rectangle shape. It
consists of a Sahn, or an open courtyard, a mosque, two
studying and teaching halls, rooms for the students, and a
wonderful minaret as well.
