Bou Inania Madrasa in Fes, Morocco

One of the beautiful sites in Fes is the Bou Inania Madrasa/School. This is where "more is more" works really well and harmoniously. From the wooden beams to the tiled, carved walls and the simple tiled floors. It was founded in 1350 by Sultan Abou el Hassan. His son Sultan Bou Inan completed it by 1357 hence the name of the madrasa (, 2015). The special thing about this school is that it includes a full mosque with a minaret, a mehrab (where the leader of the prayer prays), a praying hall and a water clock for prayer times.  

What I like about this school is that it is still alive to this day and being used by the public. During Ramadan, the extra night prayers are held there. Wouldn't you just love to pray surrounded by all that beauty?
