See the burial site of the patron of Tlemcen that lies behind the walls of Mosquée Sidi Boumediene. Many come here for obvious religious purposes but also to worship the patron, himself. Even though the burial chamber looks simple, the rest of the buildings bears details which were handcrafted by craftsmen from Fes. In the center of the inner yard lies a well filled with water believed to bring blessings. The complex includes other rooms like the prayer room or the madrassa--Islamic religious school.
