Beautiful building with wonderful architecture. A photographer 's paradise.

Well worth a visit.

Intriguing to be allowed in to a mosque.

“Beautiful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Non Muslims weren't allowed in but the building was beautiful and the calls to prayer throughout the day were enchanting to hear.

“The finest architecture in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

A fascinating visit with a great deal to see. The main court, the mosque and the students rooms are all superb.

“Nice from the outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

The mosque makes for a nice photograph opportunity from the exterior. My father and I walked and the outside and took a number of pictures. I'm not sure if entry would have been allowed for non Muslims

There were one or two locals outside trying to sell passing tourists a guide book but they weren't too pushy and actually had a good sense of humour.

Interesting stork nests nearby. The mosque is also a good reference point for this part of the city but shouldn't be confused with the main mosque

“Very traditional and amazing place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

Went there during the prayer time with my wife but she was not able to go in as there is no women space but i was able to go in and pray. The courtyard the tiles are chipped and needs a bit of restoration. The place where abulation is performed is very nice. The prayer hall needs a lot of work mats are unclean. But worth viewing the place.
