Lovely minaret

Cannot go into the mosque but it is a lovely building and looks very good. It sure works like a lighthouse for us travelers. Enjoyed being near it during prayers.

From the exterior this historical place looks amazing but am afraid it's very underwhelming when you go inside. It has a look of despair to be honest. Doesn't have the authentic morocco feeling to it. There are too many beggars about the place, if you give some loose change to one, then you won't be able to get away from... More

Had a chance to visit this beautifully designed mosque, the landmark mosque of Marrakech. The inside is really amazing. This is one of the oldest mosque in Morocco.

The surrounding of the mosque is amazing. The gardens are so green and lush. I always take some cat food and water with me to food the stray cats and kittens .

Although the mosque is very old, the interior condition was very good. Inside the mosque is absolutely beautiful.

Visit the third largest Mosque in the World next to Mecca and a Mosque in Saudia Arabia! Just magnificent and completed in 12 years! Houses over 50,000 folks inside and 30,00 outside! All done in marble with rotating open roof! Don't want to miss this site!

Its unfortunate that non Muslims are not allowed to enters mosques does God not want us also? Anyway the Koutoubia is suitably old from the outside and you can catch a glimpse of the interior from the doorways

I think you will have to be a Muslim to enjoy this place. The garden was disgusting, smelly and filled with bums and trash.
