Alhambra. Yup this place makes me so curious…especially after i saw it on television's show then googling and here is a bit review of mine, enjoy it ;)

Alhambra is located at Granada, Spain. Formerly known as Andalusia. On 8′th century Islam was here (in Spain) and Alhambra is a reflection from Umayyad's dynasty.

Alhambra itself is derived from Arabic, literally means “red” or completely Calat Alhambra means “red castle”, which is reflects the color of red clay from the fort. 

Recently Alhambra looks  reddish yet the real building was originally painted white.

Arabic Patterns

Alhambra is one of the heritage art of Islam, you can find Arabic pattern on each wall. For  the example is “wa la ghalibu illallah” its wrote repeated on the wall. Then UNESCO has given this place became one of World Heritage on 1984.

The garden is very beautiful as a description of heaven in the interpretation of the Qur’an by its architect. 
QS 44:51-57 due to this quote which is Allah always describes a heaven is identic with the fully garden and fountain as well.  Thus the architect has build this garden [maybe]
