Overview of Mouassine Fountain

The Mouassine Fountain was built in the 16th century by order of Abdullah Al-Ghalib as part of the construction of a mosque, library and hammam in the center of the Medina. The fountain provided residents of nearby houses with drinking water. Next to the main arch of the fountain there are three more, which were drinking bowls for animals.

The key feature of the fountain is the incredibly beautiful design of the protruding arches and canopy, decorated with carved patterns on cedar wood.

By the way, water was supplied to the fountain through the Hettra water supply system, which was organized under the Agdal Gardens and the Menara Gardens.
