The Royal Stables of Meknes...an engineering marvel in its time.
The location of the Royal Stables of Meknes, near the Agdal Basin, and the construction were both carefully considered to accommodate a large number of horses. The rows of the stables were placed at specific angles. These angles gave stable masters the highest possible visibility of their horses across a large area. The building itself has massive walls, original cedar wood doors, arched ceilings, very small windows, and a brilliant system of underflow water chambers. The high ceilings and small windows kept the stables cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while the canal constantly fed the stables with fresh water. The royal horses were always kept at an ideal temperature and never lacked clean drinking water. #stables #royalstables #meknes #morocco #horses #travelphotography #livetotravel #arches #arch #explore #echo #adventuretime #adventures #life #history #canon5dmarkiv
