Encyclopedia > Ghardaia

Ghardaia is a town in eastern Algeria, the capital of a wilaya of the same name. It is the traditional heart of the M'zab valley, home of the Ibadi Muslim sect in Algeria, and has preserved its original medieval architecture remarkably well; the valley of which it forms a part is an official World Heritage Site.
