Loosely inspired by the ruins of the congregational mosque of Madīnat Al-Zahrā, "The Shining City" (مدينة الزهراء), a vast, fortified Andalusian palace-city built by Abd-ar-Rahman III (912-961), the first Umayyad Caliph of Córdoba.

In 1010 it was sacked and destroyed in a civil war, and thereafter abandoned, with many elements re-used elsewhere. Its ruins were excavated starting from the 1910s.

Only about 10 percent of the 112 hectares (0.43 sq mi) of the palace have been excavated and restored, and this area includes "two caliphal residences, with associated bath complexes, two aristocratic residences, and service quarters... spaces associated with the palace guard; some large administrative buildings... the extraordinary court complex, presided over by the reception hall... the great garden spaces, and just outside this area, the congregational mosque".

To get a better idea, check out this video tour of the mosque.

which mods did you use to build this piece of art? it kind of seems to me that you are using custom blocks.

Also is it possible to download the map ?

Thanks, BlankeTea! I updated the project description, with the list of mods used. The world save is not downloadable for now.
