Temara (Arabic: تمارة) is a coastal city in Morocco. [1] It is part of the Wilaya Rabat -Salé, and is located directly south of Rabat on the Atlantic coast, in the suburban area of the capital. The city has 250,000 inhabitants as of 2010. It is twinned with Saint Germain en Laye, France. The city has beaches and a small pleasure port.


Temara was founded in the twelfth century (1130–1163) by the Almohad Sultan Abd al-Mumin, who built a Mosque there. Five centuries later, Mulai Ismail built the current wall and made from Témara a ribat (casern) around said mosque. Later, Mulai Abd ar-Rahman (1822–1859) and Moulay Abdul Aziz (1894–1908), completed (Kasbah de guiche Oudaïa) as religious and military camps.


Temara is close to Morocco's two main cities, Rabat, the capital, and economic center Casablanca.

Two main zones share the essence of the industrial units in the city of Temara. The first is in the direction of Casablanca, and, with a total area of 120 hectares, extensible to 300 Ha work 55 industrial units in this zone, contains the more clean industry sectors (textiles, packaging, printing, food). The second industrial zone is at the other end of town, in the direction of Rabat. It is the industrial zone Attasnia, which, with a total of 20 hectares, contains 23 industrial units (such as textiles, electronics, chemicals).


As well the population was at first constituted by Zaer tribes and different tribes of Oudayas ( Military human groups from different regions of Morocco were established by the Sultan, as exchange of their Military service to the Sultan they had the right to cultivate the land). Now the population was diversified by all ethnics in Morocco in a fluid emigration to the city and its suburbs; Arabs, Amazighs, Rifs, Chleuhs, Hassanis . The age of the majority inhabitant is under twenty years old with a significant rate of natural growth also.
