The Saadian Tombs is a famous mausoleum where more than 100 members of the Saadi Dynasty are buried. The tombs occupy a small enclosed place at the Kasbah. This beautiful landmark was quite a hidden place and was rediscovered in 1917. The Saadian Tombs are beautifully decorated with colorful tiles, Arabic scriptures and many astonishing carvings of golden leaves. The building is classified into two mausoleums with 66 tombs housed in them and nearly 100 outside in the gardens. The first mausoleum is more magnificent among the two as it has decorated vaulted roof, fine carvings and stunning zellij tiles. The second mausoleum is older and less impressive. The outside gardens has 100 scattered tombs with gravestones covered in marvelous colored tiles and most of them have inscriptions with epitaphs and quotes from the Qur'an.
