Opposite the Bou Inania Medersa entrance, there are 12 windows above 13 carved beams sticking out of the wall. It's said brass bowls were set on the beams and that water flowed into them, making them chime out the hours of prayer. No-one knows how it worked; its secret lies buried with the magician who invented it.
