Grande mosque of Kairouan

This was a nice mosque with a big courtyard. Women have to keep their arms, shoulders, legs and head covered to enter. Men also had to cover up legs if wearing shorts.

The Grand Mosque was beautiful. The mosque looked very clean however the toilets were very smelly and could do with a good clean and regular maintenance.

Went here as part of a tour and liked the place and it's history learnt a lot about it and how popular it is. We'll worth a check out and a little rest point before next journey.
