Ouazzane (also Ouezzane, Wazan, Wazzan, Uessen) (Arabic: وزان‎) is a town in northern Morocco, with a population of 59,606 recorded in the 2014 Moroccan census.The city is well known in Morocco and throughout the Islamic world as a spiritual capital for it was home for many of the pillars of Sufism. It has been known also as “Dar Dmana”. Many Jews of Morocco consider Ouazzane to be a holy city and make pilgrimages there to venerate the tomb of several marabouts (Moroccan saints), particularly moul Anrhaz, the local name for Rabbi Amram ben Diwan, an eighteenth-century rabbi who lived in the city and whose burial site is associated with a number of miracles. During the Rif rebellion (leader Abd el Krim) in 1925 -1926 Ouazzane was an important supply base for the French Army. Ouazzane was connected by a 600 mm gauge narrow gauge railway via Ain Dfali, Mechra Bel Ksiri to Port Lyautey, now Kenitra, forming part of the 1912 - 1914 French built extensive narrow gauge network of Chemins de fer Militaires du Maroc, the largest 600 mm gauge network that ever existed in Africa with a total length of more than 1700 kilometres.
