Among the graves are those of Ahmad al-Mansur and his family. The building is composed of three rooms. The most famous is the room with the twelve columns. This room contains the grave of the son of the sultan's son Ahmad al-Mansur. The stele is in finely worked cedar wood and stucco work. The monuments are made of Italian Carrara marble. Outside the building is a garden and the graves of soldiers and servants.

It sounds like one of those stories where as much is spoken about, there is still a secret held within to be discovered or may be not. You know, all those rumors built around some places...... Tell me, if you found some. I am all ears for them. That’s some story behind the tomb.

I feel politics sucks, no matter what the era is. How different the normal entrance could have been, if the option was available. It just something that got me into reading more about it. Cool & excellent article, man! This Moulay Ismail dude must have had some issue with these people to have gone to the extent of closing all entry points & all.

Just kidding! I think, without such an interesting stuff going around it, its just some historical building. You gave it a kinda look of exciting place to go to & discover some hidden aristocratic stuff around! I am not knowledgeable as such, but sure an inquisitive mind & fun people around would make Saadian Tomb a good place on the itinerary. Ricky, quite a digging you have done! Just kidding!
