Menara Gardens

Menara Gardens are botanical gardens located to the west of Marrakech, Morocco. They were established in 1130 AD by the Almohad Caliphate ruler Abd al-Mu'min. The Gardens' name derives from the pavilion that was built during the 16th century AD Saadi dynasty and renovated in 1869 AD by sultan Abd al-Rahman of Morocco. Menara Gardens were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 as part of Medina of Marrakesh.
