Lovely place to visit

Lovely building to visit, beautiful and interesting, there were a lot of small rooms upstairs! Some were tiny! If you visit Marrakesh you have got to visit this place!

Another mosque in Marrakech. You can't go inside and is not that impressive from the outside. So take the photo and move on to the next one.

As for every mosque you connot come in side as a non-muslim. So rating concerns the outside which might not be fair.

right next to the madrasa (which is well worth a visit), so it's a nice place to stop and take photo as only muslims are allowed entry.

Closed to non-Muslims of course. Walls and architecture is beautiful but that's as far as you can get. Grounds are well taken care of and by far the prettiest mosc.

No non-muslims allowed so as with all mosques it's nothing more than a quick appreciation of the exterior & a few photos for the scrapbook. While mosques are part of the Marrakesh experience, one needs to keep in mind that muslim religious sites are not as open as the christian religious sites of Europe/the U.S. Nor are they as willing...

This like the other mosques was open for prayer times and men only at these times (no space for women to pray here). It was local to the riad and so a convenient and historical place to pray in. Peaceful and serene at these times

We went to so many sites in Marrakech but enjoyed this from the outside. Very close to djamaa El fna square

Beautiful building with wonderful architecture. A photographer 's paradise. Well worth a visit. Intriguing to be allowed in to a mosque.

Non Muslims weren't allowed in but the building was beautiful and the calls to prayer throughout the day were enchanting to hear.
