This was my first foray into Rabat, taken after a morning darija class.
Chellah is the ruins of an old town, with a mix of architecture from Roman and Islamic times. It had been built in the pre-Islamic era, but was later used by a sultan who added a mosque and the royal tombs. Most of it was in ruins, but the various tombs were well preserved and I could see the outside of the old baths.
Next, I visited the Mausoleum of Mohammad V, the former king of Morocco. Inside, there was a place for a reader of the Qur’an who apparently reads throughout the day, and a space for the current king’s body when he dies.
After, I wandered through the medina, the old city, which was very blue and felt very authentic. Just based on the medina, I began to like Morocco more than I had the UAE.
