I wouldn't drive a long way to see the mosque, but it was part of day's entertainment of driving over the Tizi n Test, and it is just 5 minutes off the road. As we arrived, a young man with a key appeared (he was watching the road), let us in, and explained things in English for about 15 minutes.... More

Being the only mosque besides the one in Casablanca, where non muslims can enter, this excursion was well worth it. In appearance more like a fortress, the once ruined interiors have been renovated and if you have the time its worth the effort

It's over an hour winding driving to get to Tin Mal from Imil. The scenery on the way is kind of interesting and there were a couple of abandoned kasbahs before you get to Tin Mal. The mosque is interesting but will not take take you more than 20 minutes to see. I'll say give it shot if you are... More

Beautiful mosque, worth seeing. 700 years old. A horse and cart ride will take there and other historic places

It's not a big detour, just a few minutes off the Tizi N'Test road, but really not much to see. Most of the site has been heavily restored, leaving only one aisle with the original stucco work for which the mosque is famous. The caretaker is not far away and you'll get in quickly, but don't allow more than 20... More

Tin Mal is a remote mosque in the Atlas mountains. If you have a car brave the dirt roads in the mountains and drive up from Marrakech, the route is beautiful and perfectly safe as long as you abide by one important rule - 'big' has priority, so pull over when a big lorry approaches. In the area close to... More

We drove from Marrakech through stunning scenery in The High Atlas to visit this exquisite 12th Century Almohad dynasty mosque. The winding road seemed to go on for ever and hardly another car in sight! A couple of local lads sitting outside greeted us and told us they would get the key to open up! The simplicity of the mosque... More
