Near the Bab Agnaou gate is the Kasbah Mosque which is known as el-Mansouria. It was named after Sultan Ahmed el Mansour who had it built in 1190 During Moulay Abdullah’s reign it was restored and then again by Sidi Mohammed ben Abdallah. Similar to the Koutoubia Minaret but not as impressive. The mosque is not open to non Muslims.
Another mosque built by Sultan Yacoub el-Mansour between 1185 and 1190. But after an explosion the mosque was rebuilt in 1569. It is also called ‘Mosque with the Golden Apples’, as a story tells the balls of its lantern were made from the golden jewels of the el-Mansour’s wife.
The minaret of the mosque is quite similar to that of the Koutoubia Mosque, with almost the same decorations with green and white tiles. As all religious buildings the mosque is closed for non-Muslims. Because we were just before a service and the doors were open, we got a glimpse of the interior of this huge building. It is amazing how many worshippers are coming to such a service, the roads are more or less overcrowded with (mostly) men in their jellaba’s.
El-Mansour Mosque is located in the middle of the Kasbah and is also called Kasbah Mosque,
Not really much to say about this one as it's yet another mosque that doesn't allow non-Muslims to enter. But it's still a pretty impressive sight and as it's near the Saadian tombs and the Palais el-Badi you might as well have a look. At prayer times the street outside is absolutely packed with worshippers - it's one of the city's most popular mosques.
The Kasbah Mosque is one of the oldest and biggest in Marrakech. It was built in the 12th century.
