Guarding The Dead

The Guard

The Guard

This is one of 12 guards we encountered at the Mausoleum complex. At the Mausoleum proper, the outside is monitored by a guard at each of the four entry doors. Inside, a guard is posted in each of the four corners of the building. (The other four guards we saw were at the two entries of the complex.) I was surprised that so many armed sentries were stationed at the complex. It made me wonder if there is a market in Morocco for the remains of deceased rulers.
