|A Quick Guide to Koutoubia Mosque, Marrakech, Morocco

Are you looking for fun, sun, culture, and history then Morocco is the ideal destination. If you leave the famous tourist beaches behind and off the beaten track, you will experience many adventures. Whether you want to go on a desert trip to explore the less-visited villages or discover one of the country's historic cities, a holiday in Morocco guarantees an unforgettable experience.

Marrakech is known for the busy squares and the narrow streets in the medieval center. This imperial city is one of the most popular destinations in the country. Get lost in the magical labyrinth of alleys here and discover hidden spots and secret gardens that seem untouched by modern times.

The Mosque of Booksellers

The Koutoubia Mosque is one of the most important historical buildings in Marrakesh and also the largest religious structure in the red city. Eye-catchers are the large minaret and the tropical garden. The Koutoubia Mosque was built in the style of Almohad in the 12th century. It is located about 200 meters from the famous Jemaa el-Fna place, the main square of the city which is a UNESCO world heritage since 2001. Five times a day, one voice surpasses the sound of the medina when the muezzin (or muadhan) calls out - "God is great" for the faithful to pray from the minaret. However, the mosque's famous minaret was completed during the reign of the Berber Almohad Abu Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur (1184-1199) and inspired other outstanding buildings such as the Giralda (the bell tower of Seville Cathedral) and the Hassan Tower in Rabat, the capital of the country. The minaret is also considered to be the symbol of Marrakesh. Non-Muslims are not allowed inside as it is still used for worship so if you are not Muslim you are not welcome in this building but you can still enjoy the beautiful architecture of the tower from the outside.
