Tinmel - The forgotten mosque
Morocco

Le Tinmel (tifinagh) est une ancienne bourgade berbère du XIIème siècle située dans le Haut Atlas marocain à 100 km au sud de Marrakech. Les conquérants almohades partirent de cette cité pour mener leurs campagnes militaires contre la dynastie almoravide. Avec la prise de Marrakech en 1147, Tinmel devient un lieu de pèlerinage essentiel. Le mausolée de Mohammed Ibn Toumert dit le "Mahdi" s'y trouve notamment avec ceux des trois premiers califes de la dynastie Almohade : `Abd al-Mu'min, Abu Yaqub Yusuf et Abû Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansûr. Après le déclin de la dynastie almohade la ville perdit de sa superbe, mais demeura néanmoins un lieu à forte connotation spirituel . Aujourd'hui, il ne reste que quelques ruines de la muraille qui entourait la ville et celles de la grande mosquée. Tinmel occupe toutefois une place primordiale dans l'histoire du Maroc et du Maghreb. C'est la mosquée archétypale, de la dynastie almohade : qui sera repris comme l'un des modèles au Maghreb durant les siècles suivants.

    More About Africa

    Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
