right weather for it. splendid views. we hung out at the nearby park, lovely trees providing shade for benches. we asked around and waited until 2pm for the mosque to open. being a muslim, we got to go in for prayers and have a walk about. i dont think theres anything very special to see inside. read carpets and white pillars everywhere. it cannot be compared to the cordoba mosque over in spain (maybe the minaret). still nice place to get away from the seering heat. oh and there's a KFC restaurant nearby lol :)

Love the minaret. It is also an ideal guide to help you locate yourself when in Marrakech.
I did not get to go in, I would have loved to visit the mosque

Set in lovely gardens and listening to the 'calling to prayer' is quite haunting. Only disappointment is that you cannot enter

It is just ok and not available to non muslims. They discriminate against ppl in this way. You are however, able to look inside.

Lovely minaret, visible from everywhere and useful for getting your bearings. Nice gardens all around and a cleaner and less frenetic part of the city
