El Badi Palace in Marrakech, Morocco, is a historic complex and a famous landmark of the city. The name "El Badi" translates from Arabic as "The Marvelous." This complex was built in the 16th century by Sultan Ahmed al-Mansur of the Saadian dynasty.

Originally, El Badi was a luxurious palace serving as a residence for the sultan and his court. It was constructed to showcase the grandeur of the Saadian dynasty and reflect its power and wealth. However, over time, the palace fell into ruins and was left in a state of decay.

The El Badi complex consists of a large inner courtyard surrounded by high walls and various buildings. In the past, the palace was known for its opulence and refinement. It housed spacious halls, palace gardens, pools, and fountains. There were also several pavilions and a harem, where the sultan's women resided.

Though El Badi is now a ruin, its majestic remains continue to impress visitors. The remnants of walls, arches, and columns create an awe-inspiring atmosphere, while local birds and vegetation add to its picturesque appeal.

A notable feature of El Badi is its elevated position on a hill, offering magnificent views of Marrakech and its surrounding areas.

Various cultural events such as festivals, exhibitions, and concerts are held at El Badi each year. Within the complex, there is also the Museum of Marrakech, which showcases artifacts related to the city's history and culture.
