Its worth montioning that the genesis of the ksar dates back to the reign of king moulay Ismail to house his son king moulay abdellah . but the ksar was reduced to rubbles and ruined except for the high outsid walls and the tours which were built of muddy earth. The ksar was rebuild under the reign of moulay abd al rahman but this time at about eught hundred metters at south east of the first site. Ever since the ksar had preponderant roles in directing the policy of region and at times its served As residential palace of the Khalifa or Caid of the Tafilalet and this up to 1965. Henceforth the ksar was a Makhzanean domain an dis still an architevtural patrimony.
