MEKNES
Dar Jamaļ


Meknes, Morocco


The Dar Jamaļ was built in 1882 to the vizier family Jamaļ. However, after the mansion's completion, there was only 12 years more before they fell into disgrace. The mansion was lost in the same debacle.
Since 1920, it has served as a musuem, and it now ranks among Morocco's best. Its exhibits vary from time to time, but focus on traditional items, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and more.
To the mansion is also what is called the Andalucian Garden, where cypress and fruit trees dominate.
Admission is 20dh, open only 3 days a week, Monday-Wednesday, 9.00-12.00 and 15-18.30.
