This is a little glimpse into the intricate architectural style of Morocco; except that the Moroccan Pavilion is not in Morocco but in Putrajaya Malaysia. It is a small splendid pavilion which contains several rooms adorned with traditional Moroccan furniture. The walls are either covered with elaborate and colourful mosaics or with bas relief of floral motifs. The geometrical shapes of the mosaics form part of what architects now call Islamic Design.
