  • Comes in handy as orientation. Westerners / non moslims aren't allowed to visit any mosques in Morocco - except the one on Casablanca (why...?). So what's there more to say...
  • Beautifully intricate construction. An oasis of calm adjoining the bustling Marrakech market. The nighttime illumination sets it aglow, visible from a long distance.
  • It was fine. You can't go in if you're not Muslim, of course. The outside is nice to look at, but not a must-see while you're in Marrakesh.
  • Awesome experience. Wonderful and historic building. Reflects history through ages of Moroccan architecture.
  • The mosque is beautiful from outside. Very historical. You cannot enter unless you are Muslim and wanna pray inside.
