Bab Aghmat (Arabic: باب أغمات, lit. 'gate of Aghmat') is the main southeastern gate of the medina (historic walled city) of Marrakesh, Morocco.
The gate originally dates back to around 1126 when the Almoravid ruler Ali ibn Yusuf built the first walls of the city, but it has been modified since this time. It was named after Aghmat, the early capital of the Almoravids before Marrakesh, which lay in this direction (i.e. to the south/southeast). The gate may have also been called Bab Yintan, though this is uncertain and this name may have referred to another nearby gate which has since disappeared.
