The Royal King Palace in Marrakech, Morocco, also known as the Royal Palace or Palais Royal, is a significant landmark and a residence of the King of Morocco. While parts of the palace are not accessible to the public due to its official use, visitors can still admire its impressive exterior and explore certain areas.

The Royal King Palace is located in the heart of the city's medina, near the Jewish Quarter (Mellah) and the famous Bahia Palace. It serves as a secondary residence for the King of Morocco, who primarily resides in the Royal Palace in Rabat.

The architecture of the Royal King Palace reflects the traditional Moroccan style, with its grand gates, towering walls, and decorative elements. The exterior walls are made of ochre-colored sandstone and feature intricate carvings, geometric patterns, and ornate brass doors.

One of the main attractions of the palace is the monumental entrance gate known as the Bab Agnaou. This gate, adorned with beautiful tilework and calligraphy, is considered one of the finest examples of Almohad architecture in Morocco. Visitors can admire its craftsmanship from the outside.

Inside the palace complex, there are expansive courtyards, lush gardens, and various buildings used for administrative purposes. While the interior of the palace is not open to the public, some areas, such as the reception hall, can occasionally be accessible during special events or official ceremonies.

The Royal King Palace holds cultural and historical significance for Morocco. It represents the monarchy and serves as a symbol of the country's heritage and tradition. The palace is guarded by the Royal Guard, and visitors can often witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony, a colorful spectacle that takes place at the entrance of the palace.
