“Another mosque, another photo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

No non-muslims allowed so as with all mosques it's nothing more than a quick appreciation of the exterior & a few photos for the scrapbook. While mosques are part of the Marrakesh experience, one needs to keep in mind that muslim religious sites are not as open as the christian religious sites of Europe/the U.S. Nor are they as willing to cater to pushy tourists

“Peaceful mosque local to the riad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This like the other mosques was open for prayer times and men only at these times (no space for women to pray here). It was local to the riad and so a convenient and historical place to pray in. Peaceful and serene at these times

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

Intriguing to be allowed in to a mosque.

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