The gardens leading up to the mosque are truly beautiful and even the cellphone tower nearby is disguised as a palm tree. This iconic minaret is what I associate with Marrakech and it was more beautiful that I thought it would be. Being non Muslim...More

It's well worth spending an hour walking around this area as the gardens are lovely and its so much quieter than the square and souk. It's also good for different views of the minaret and to experience another garden space.

Wherever you are in the Medina the Koutoubia Minaret is your reference point; if you can see it you can't be lost. It is an architectural gem set in pleasant gardens and is well worth close study when you want a break from sightseeing or...More

Brilliantly constructed Mosque, one of the oldest in Marrakesh. The construction allows cool breeze to enter mosque, feels tranquil in the mosque despite the heat outside. We prayed Jumma Salah and it was a heart warming experience listening to the khutba and keerat. There are...More

Normally Koutoubia at any time you can go to see; but just the muslims can get access to his minaret.

Apologies. I’m not actually sure what time jummah starts. When we went we spent the whole morning there and that way we didn’t miss it. If you look non tourism guides it may help.
