While as a non-Muslim, I was not allowed in, I enjoyed looking at this mosque and even more hearing about its stunning history. And it is green as the picture below shows!

Unfortunately the mosque is closed to visitors - nice gardens and lovely place to stroll around...The minar is like all others but it is the tallest of all minarets. Its a very nice area to walk around ..and across it is the Jama el Fina...More

This is an impressive building, but it is a pitty that we can not visit it on the inside. I still don’t understand why some parts are not accessible for visitors.

We did lots of walkings around Koutubia Mosque especially in the gardens. Very peaceful place to relax for few hours. Inside the mosque, it is so big, I am not sure if non-muslims are allowed to go in. I would definitely visit this place again...More

We went here as part of a tour and were impressed by the scale of the minaret and the story of the uppermost gold ball, the meaning behind the gallow-like structure and the reason for the relocation of the mosque.

The Koutubia Mosque and surrounding gardens are gorgeous and definitely a must see while in Marrakech. The sound of the call to prayer was one of my favorite things about our visit - hauntingly beautiful! I'd highly recommend taking a stroll around the grounds before...More

Visited with family young children aged 3, 6 and 11, Although you cannot go inside the mosque the gardens surrounding it are beautiful. Read up on the history of this mosque so you know exactly how it fits in

Koutoubia is one of the beautiful monument to visit when you are in Marrakech; Koutoubia still resisting. You will admire the architecture of this mosque and area

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.
