During our walk through the Fes Medina, we stopped at the Kairaouine Mosque and University. We were fortunate to be able to enter the courtyard and see the prayer room which are well maintained.
This is the oldest continuously functioning university in the world; it was founded in the year 859 A.D. The courtyard is gorgeous and the upper levels have a beautiful few to the clear blue sky. We were advised that the best students are provided the best rooms with the best views when the Madrasa is in session.
If you can arrange to visit this Mosque, by all means do so. Seeing the Mihrab, the huge wood door to the courtyard and the amazing architecture and ancient arabic carvings are awe-inspiring.
