“Beautiful Minaret and garden”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The garden is amazing for escaping from the hot Moroccan sun, but try not to be too close during the call to prayer because it can be quite loud.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

visit the Medina in the old town and the jewish quarter to sample Marakech. You will get the atompshere, energy and sometimes squalor, ingenuity of the people side by side with living history.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We first viewed the minaret from the end of a long boulevard. It is the oldest mosque in Marrakech and is the tallest structure at 77 metres. We walked around the building and visited the original foundation of the older mosque from the 12th century. The mosque can hold 20,000 people inside and another 20,000 outside on mats amongst the old foundation.

Unfortunately non-Muslims are not allowed inside but it was a nice walk around the grounds.

“Cannot go inside unless a Muslim”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Dominates the square in Marrakech, has a cute garden and beautiful architecture however I had seen mixed reviews regarding muslims/non muslims allowed inside. When we attended, were told non-muslims not allowed.
