The Bahia palace – Marrakech

The Bahia palace was the residence of the sultan and is very nicely restored. What made the most impression on me was the amount of details in the rooms. Since it is in accordance with Muslim rules, the motives was not any of living and breathing things. Here are some examples of the decorations.

I can’t help it when I see palaces, castles, churches mosques etc heavily decorated like this I think about the thousands of nameless and forgotten workers who did the work. They built and decorated everything beautifully, the sultan just used the palace.
