Since non-muslims cannot get into the mosques this is a rare opportunity to witness some splendid interior architecture

The ticket also included a museum next door and a riad that is used for art exhibits and other events. All were well worth the time. Great exhibits, art, culture, and history.

we didn't have a guide, just walked through medina and found it right in the heart of it. was quite crowdy, but worth a visit, you can even climb stairs to see all the rooms.

Some wonderful architecture to see, and something of an insight to days gone by... However, somewhat lacking on information and explanation. Door staff not too helpful.
