Many examples of muslim architecture can be found in mosques, places of social services, and stately residence, etc. The muslims, like many other civilizations worldwide, built many beautiful castles such as the one pictured above, the Ahambra in Granada. ~Channing Brooks
The Alhambra, Granada, Andalusia, Spain - It was originally constructed as a small fortress in 889 and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century, when its current palace and walls were built. It was then converted into a royal palace in 1333. Moorish poets described it as 'a pearl set in emeralds' because of the colour of its buildings and the woods around them.
