Nice mosque near the main square of Marrakech. Not much to see but is classed as the Eiffel Tower of Marrakech. Some vendors nearby trying to sell hats.

You can see the minaret from various places in the city, so if you see it then it's worth a visit. Personally, I see it as an additional place to see when you're already in the area and wouldn't make a special trip. I absolutely love architecture especially mosques and churches, but I don't think this mosque should be so... More

Lovely mosque located in the heart of Marrakech. Very interesting history behind the four spheres located on top of the minaret. The ruins of the old mosque can also be seen adjacent and create nice architectural tour place. Would definitely make a point to go visit especially if you are going to be in the city.

Walked over from our hotel. Came through the park next door which was nice. Mosque was locked up outside of prayer times which is a shame, it is also barred for non muslims which i think is wrong. As long as one respects the place of worship, cover your head, dress respectfully, all people should be allowed in. It does... More

Koutoubia Mosque is one of the most beautiful places in Marrakech. One can go inside and pray or take pictures from outside. We did both. We prayed the Friday prayer and took pictures from both the inside and outside (another day). There's a nice atmosphere inside. We also went to the Koutoubia garden. It was good, but at that time...

Nice to see, I only went over for a look at night but my bf went in to pray. He said one of the locals was trying to speak to him before prayer which he didn't like and found it a bit disrespectful. Worth a visit as its one of the first things you spot when you come in to... More

There isn't any fans inside, so going for jumma was a very warm affair. Lovely masjid, the inside is similar to any grand masjid you'd find in Saudi.

Very beautiful and historically interesting place. There were a lot of street salesmen (as everywhere else), but not anything real disturbing. The park was totally clear from those, though. We had a great walk, and enjoyed the pretty setting from one of the many benches in the park.

We arrived in Marrakech during Ramadan and was very fortunate to see the ending of it with the crescent moon and Eid celebrations. We sat and were hypnotised by the thousands of Muslims praying around the mosque, we sat for at least an hour in amazement. Felt very privileged to have been able to witness this. The call to prayer... More
