Pretty from the outside and nice to walk around. Interesting place to do some people watching. But if you are not a muslim, you cant go inside. So I cant say much about it. Took some cool pictures.

Lovely architecture, full of Islamic art. It is set in the middle of a peaceful garden. Sadly the doors to the mosque were not open at time we visited.

The Garden behind the mosque is beautiful, very pleasure for walking, but avoid during the hot seasons and lunch time.

Visit Marrakech and you can not miss this mosque, it towers across the city and is a great landmark to get your bearings. We did not visit inside but did sit in the square outside and listened to the call to prayers. There are some nice gardens just behind the mosque where you can sit and enjoy the atmosphere in...

On approaching the Masjid there are some lovely welcoming people offering Salaam. When entering the Masjid you walk down a few steps and enter a carpeted area, ladies prayer is to the right and men to... More

This mosque was my landmark for finding my way home to the Medina. It is a beautiful building although I only saw it from the outside. The area around the mosque is nice too, with gardens and benches to sit on. A lovely place to people watch and watch the world go by. It is especially beautiful at night when... More

The Marrakech skyline with the Atlas mountains is just perfect with the Koutoubia minaret. It is almost iconic. It is a shame that you can not visit the inside but the gardens around the outside are nice.
