“Quite the experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Again, plan to spend some time here. If you are looking to get a shot without tons of tourists in the shots, then it takes some time.

Be respectful at all times. Ask questions. The people will always share a bit of culture and great history stories with you.

“The staple of any well rounded visit to Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Beautiful architecture and gardens, a great place to watch the sun set away from the sometimes overpowering hustle and bustle of the adjacent Djemaa El Fna square. A definite must-see during your stay.

The lovely minaret on this Mosque can be seen from all parts of the medina of Marrakech and it is a wonderful symbol.

“A must visit for anyone going to Marrackech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Beautiful mosque surrounded by lovely gardens. For those permitted inside you’ll be able to pray in tranquil cools surroundings and be able to admire the 12 century architecture. A must see. Not sure why non-Muslim’s are not allowed in at non prayer times. Daft!

“Beautiful Minaret and Peaceful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The mosque as others have noted is closed to non-Muslims, but the exterior architecture and garden spaces make this central landmark a must see.
