Each of them has its own charm and unique architectural aesthetic. One of the distinctive historical buildings of the city of Rabat is the Kasbah of Oudayas.

    And its distinction is not limited only to its historical value, but rather its unique location plays an important role in this distinction. As it is in the middle of the white city (the distinctive color of Rabat), and overlooks the sea and the Bouregreg River. As for its history, it extends over… Eight centuries ago, it was built by Sultan Abd al-Mu’min al-Mawhad in 1165. And since that date, it has been the favorite place to reside for kings and sultans.

Although the minaret remained alone in this place. The tomb of King Mohammed V began to crowd it after the late King Hassan II built it as a tomb for his father. Then the boy soon joined his father and his brother, Prince Abdullah, for the three to settle down a few meters away from a mosque whose construction was not completed, and if it had been completed, it would have been no more.
