The Hall of the Ajimeces, (Sala de los Ajimeces) is so called because of two twin balconies on its north wall, which overlook the garden. The hall, which is connected with the Hall of the Two Sisters (Sala de Dos Hermanas) and with Daraxa's Mirador (Mirador de Daraxa), is rectangular and is covered by a dome of mocarabes, remade in the 16th century. Its walls are decorated with plasterwork with religious inscriptions and coats of arms with the Nasrid motto. A frieze surrounds the hall underneath the dome with the following inscription:«May our Master Abu Abd' Allah, emir of the Muslims, receive God's help and protection as well as a glorious victory.
