Sahrij Medersa, a summary of all wonderful things of Islamic architecture. 一座伊斯兰建筑精美典范

When I arrived in Morocco, I was told that there are no active mosques in Morocco that non Muslims are allowed to freely access. Some of them allow non-Muslim tourists to visit courtyard. There are a couple in Fes which you can look in, but not step over the threshold. As an architecture enthusiast, I was slightly disappointed at first.

Luckily there are a couple of madrasas that you can look around. I’ve spent some time wandering around in Fes Medina and have spotted some great architectures.

Today I’d love to share with dear Steemit friends some Islamic architectures with details.

当我到达摩洛哥的时候,才知道这里的清真寺是不对非穆斯林游客开放的。有很少一些破例可以接受游客观赏中庭,但是大部分是很严格的。游客只能站在外面看,自然也看不出什么细节。我听了真是有点失望,本来此行是为了看建筑的。

还好,在非斯城里有一些伊斯兰学校可以参观,很多清真寺但从外观看上去也是非常精美,在古城逛了几天,也是收获多多,在这里我跟你们分享我在非斯看到的一些我很喜欢的建筑,希望你们也喜欢。

Lost in Fes, an ancient Labyrinth town in Morocco 迷失在摩洛哥非斯

Arab architecture has always fascinated me, with its unique geometric and interlace patterned ornaments. I always dreamed to visit those a far away Arab world.

There are many good flight connections from Belgium to Morocco, so I started my Arab adventure in Morocco and hopefully I can visit more Arab countries in the future. Morocco is quite developed in the tourism industry. I was joking with friends that every riad (a garden that is applied to town houses built round a central courtyard) becomes a guesthouse in the medina (old town) of the major Moroccan cities and everyone is doing something associated with tourism.

Today I’m going to show my dear Steemit friends to Fes city.

今天跟我来看看摩洛哥著名的古城,非斯。

我一直觉得阿拉伯的建筑非常神秘和精美,那些马赛克瓷砖和对称的图案都很吸引人。所以我想去阿拉伯国家好好看看。

比利时有很多摩洛哥的移民,从这里飞去摩洛哥方便有便宜,于是我把摩洛哥作为我初探阿拉伯国家的第一站,希望未来有更多机会探索这个陌生的文化。摩洛哥作为第一站其实很理想,这个北非国家的旅游业发展的不错,每年有很多游客来摩洛哥。我跟朋友们开玩笑说,摩洛哥很多古城里面的老房子都变成了民宿。比如非斯,大部分年轻人都从事旅游业。加上这里很多年轻人都会说法语,交流并没有障碍。

Morocco’s crazy market – Jemaa el-Fnaa, day and night 摩洛哥的一千零一夜。

Today I bring you to one of the coolest market in the world – Jemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech. It’s one of the craziest places in the world. There’re lots going on, vendors, food stall holders, entertainers, monkeys, story tellers, dancers. I somehow got the illusion that some kinds of Arabian 1001 night stories are going to happen here.

德吉玛在摩洛哥的马拉喀什市。德吉玛是个很有意思是的广场,尤其在晚上,当一个个夜市摊开始营业以后。这是我见过最疯狂的市场。非常喧嚣热闹数不清的夜市摊,招揽你进去的小贩,还有一些耍猴耍蛇的艺人,讲故事算命的半仙,舞者,加上烧烤摊的烟雾弥漫……顿时有一种幻觉,好像身在一千零一个的故事而每个角落仿佛下一秒都会有故事发生。

Impressive blue Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, Morocco. 摩洛哥的蓝色花园。 FridayBlue – Colorchallenge

I bring you today to Jardin Majorelle, a beautiful garden with an impressive shade of blue. The garden is a bit outside the busy center of Marrakech. It’s like a oasis in the pink city of Marrakech. Here you can see so many different colors, all of high saturation. Especially this delightful shade of blue, which makes me feel tranquil immediately. Designer YSL bought this garden and after he passed away it is now open to public. They said this kind blue is YSL blue, I love the color even though I’m not that familiar with YSL’s fashion.

今天我要带你们去看看摩洛哥马拉喀什市的马若雷勒花园。花园的主色调是一种很美丽的蓝色调。花园坐落在市郊,离马拉喀什喧嚣的市中心有一段距离。她就像是绿洲一样的存在,对于马拉喀什这座离沙漠不远的粉红城市。相比马拉喀什粉灰的色调, 马若雷勒花园则是大胆运用各种饱和度很高的颜色,我最喜欢的还是花园的主色调蓝色。设计师YSL曾经买下了这个花园作为私家花园,他过世以后这个花园开始向公共开放。据说这种蓝色是YSL先生喜欢运用的蓝色,我对时尚不那么理解,但是真的单纯觉得这个蓝色很美。
