Nice but under renovation

In March 2015 it was under renovation. It's good photography material. Visit in daytime and at night for the lighted view. It's in the same complex as the mausoleum of Mohammed IV

Covered in scaffolding at the time of our visit, mausoleum on same site so time not wasted if can't see it properly. One its own not really worth bothering with.

This is an interesting location with a good story if you have a guide to tell it to you. If you don't know the story, this place isn't very exciting. The tower was also under construction so we didn't really see it, only the plaza.

As of April 3 most of the tower is behind scaffolding. The guards are fine, reminiscent of Buckingham Palace. The mausoleum across the plaza is much more interesting but the crowds must be huge sometimes from the size of the plaza.

When visiting the mausoleum the tower is there to see. Unfortunately at this moment there's scaffolding around it so that's what you see.

I have seen photos of the tower and it is impressive. Unfortunately we could not really see enough to be impressed. The view across the columns does give an idea of the size of the planned but never built mosque.

At the moment the tower is being cleaned or repaired, so it's a bit of a dud. However it is right next to the mausoleum (see my review), which I do recommend, so you will see while you're there.

This place was really interesting, but our guide told us some fantastic historical stories. If you don't have a guide, you may wonder why you're there. Guides hang around, you can get an official one, or unofficial - it doesn't really matter, as long as they know what they are talking about and make the visit interesting.
