The Saadian Tombs are a historical complex and mausoleum located in Marrakech, Morocco. It is one of the most significant landmarks in the city and attracts many tourists.

The Saadian Tombs were constructed in the 16th century and served as the burial place for members of the Saadian dynasty. However, over time, the mausoleum was forgotten and buried until it was rediscovered by French archaeologists in 1917. Since then, the site has been restored and opened to the public.

The Saadian Tombs complex consists of three main mausoleums, as well as a small garden. The main mausoleum contains the tombs of Saadian sultans and their family members. The second mausoleum, known as the "Hall of the Twelve Columns," served as the burial place for high-ranking officials and military leaders. The third mausoleum, called the "Hall of the Unknown," contains the tombs of another branch of the Saadian dynasty.

The Saadian Tombs are distinguished by their architecture and decorative elements. The mausoleum buildings are designed in the traditional Moroccan style, featuring ceramic tiles, woodcarvings, and stone decorations. The interiors of the tombs are adorned with intricate frescoes and patterns. In the garden of the mausoleum, visitors can find various plants and trees, creating a pleasant atmosphere.

The Saadian Tombs are an important historical and cultural monument in Morocco. Their discovery brought international attention to the rich heritage of the Saadian dynasty. The mausoleums are places of worship and reverence for many people, as well as being of interest to researchers and history enthusiasts.
