“Opening hours”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The mosque has always remained closed with some lads hanging out outside trying to tell us about it. Maybe at an additional fee they would have let us in...

“Tunis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Amazing, stunning mosque. Only thing it's not open throughout the day. The carvings are wonderful and very intricate. And the people are super friendly.

“Full of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Located in the middle of the medina souks it looks gourgeous. Full of history, well preserved. It is a big mosque and makes you feel that you are in an islamic country. Worth to see

“Not worth the visit for a non-Muslim”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

As a non-Muslim, you are not allowed into the mosque, or even the courtyard. If you still want to visit, you can pay an unreasonably high fee just to step through a doorway and look into the courtyard (although you don't find this out until after you've paid). From other descriptions I am sure that the impression would be quite different if you were able to participate in a sermon or visit the interior.

There are many more accessible and more impressive mosques and buildings to visit for those of us who are unable to participate in the more intimate and historically important aspects of a mosque.
