The Aghlabids are probably most known for rebuilding the Ezzitouana Mosque into the structure we see today (minus the minaret, which has been rebuilt many times).
Under the Aghlabids, the mosque became “the focal point of the religious and cultural life of the Aghlabid reign.” (Saoud 2004) Non-Muslims have always been forbidden from the mosque’s interior, creating an interesting situation in which the center of the cultural life of city is inaccessible to all of the city’s minorities.
