Full square in the evening

It is interesting to see how empty the square in front of the mosque and how full it is in the evening. The mosque itself is beautiful is visible from many places in Marrakesh.

Being a Muslim I really wanted to visit the mosque and pray inside it. Unfortunately, it is open at extremely set times and although we attempted to go 4 times in 1 week we weren't successful. The gardens are amazingly maintained and the mosque is lovely from the outside. Be wary of the numerous people outside the mosque pretending to... More

This mosque is in the heart of the main square and also a meeting point for lots of groups. Personally i found it very similar to the rest of the mosques that we visited, except for its size. i liked it in the evening though during sunset. Good spot for some pictures. keep in mind it is open only to... More

A classy tranquil environment with all the necessary creature comforts. Great staff, a fantastic bar providing excellent cocktails. A great place to escape the hustle and bustle for an hour or three!

I found it peaceful here and loved the little stalls outside the mosque. Everyone helpful here and the inside of the mosque is stunning.

Traditional North African Minareted Mosque but not really opened to non-Muslim. Tranquil gardens to the back of the Mosque and an open courtyard where it's really nice to sit on one of the benches and watch the world go by until sunset punctuated by the call to prayer.

As non-Muslims we could not enter this mosque, which was a bit of a disappointment as we had been inside mosques in Turkey. This ruling was instituted by the French and never changed. The outside is very interesting and there is one door left open for people to look into the entrance area and there is a splendid vaulted ceiling.... More

Me and my partner had a tour inside of this beautiful mosque. And it is absolutely beautiful. We went right up to the top to view the beautiful city and it was breath taking.

Non muslim people can't enter mosques, so much of the "big wonders" can be only seen through a camera. Nice gardens outside. A nice-to-see-closer place though.
