If you are driving around Meknes, you will more than likely drive past this beautiful and impressive gate. There is no place to park so you might have to take pictures quickly in a slow-moving car as we did.

Nice view but the street is always crowded so you can take proper photos, yet there is more beautiful locations than it.

The monumental gate bears an Arabic inscription that translates as “I am the most beautiful gate in Morocco. I’m like the moon in the sky. Property and wealth are written on my front.”

Yes it’s a wonderful big door and any tour guide will definitely take you there, but it’s one among thousands in Morocco so don’t feel bad if you miss it.
