Tin Mal Mosque, Ijoukak

#13 of 30 in Historic Sites in Marrakech-Safi
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Built in 1156 and perched on the side of the hill overlooking a river valley, Tin Mal Mosque represents one of Morocco's two mosques that allow non-Muslims to enter. The architectural gem commemorates the leader of the Almohad Caliphate, of which the surrounding village once served as the center. Notice the keyhole-shaped arched cut through the dusty, rose-tinted walls (during sunset, the rays shine through the arches), and the interior's carved ceilings of cedar. The mosque still holds Friday prayers, but on other days you can visit and look around. Plan your visit to Tin Mal Mosque and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Ijoukak attractions planner.
