Oudaya's Kasbah (Rabat)

The Kasbah of the Udayas is a kasbah in Rabat, Morocco, located at the mouth of the Bou Regreg river opposite Salé. It was built during the reign of the Almohads (AD 1121-1269).

When the Almohads had captured Rabat and destroyed the kasbah of the Almoravids in the town, they began reconstructing it in AH 544 / AD 1150. They added a palace and a mosque and named it al-Mahdiyya, after their ancestor al-Mahdi Ibn Tumart. After the death of Yaqub al-Mansur (AH 595 / AD 1199) the kasbah was deserted.

The Almohads brought significant changes to the Rabat area, including the destruction and rebuilding of the Kasbah of the Udayas and turning Chellah into a royal necropolis.
