Mauritius (pronounced Mar-ish-us). A small island country off the east coast of Africa. This rich island seems comparable to a Caribbean island getaway... except a large amount of the locals in Mauritius are of Indian descent with either a Hindu or Islamic background and so the food served at restaurants often follow the rules of these religions. Cool! This map shows some popular tourist attractions. Hopefully I can use this one day.
The wonderful #interiors of the At-Attarine #madrasa inside the old #medina of Fez. Built by the Marinid sultan Uthman II in 1323-5. The term 'Madrasa' means: '' a place where learning and studying take place'' and it is usually referred to a school or college for the study of the Islamic religion. #fes #fez #alattarine #islamic #morocco #moroccan #imperial #architecture #crafts #travel #tourism #landmark #unesco #style #africa
It was more like two hundred years (but it was very sporadic and mainly ineffectual)), and of course in the first place Muslims conquered by force lands which were Christian.
