EL KOUTOUBIA MOSQUE

EL KOUTOUBIA MOSQUE MARRAKECH MOROCCO

 

one of the most attractive sightseeing in Marrakech

The first Koutoubia Mosque was built between 1147 and 1154 and ended in 1157 under the reign of the unified Caliph Ya’qub al-Mansur, where it was realized that the mihrab was neutral and not heading towards Mecca, which had undergone many changes until the end of the twelfth century.

The second mosque was built to be identical to the first except for its direction. The planning, architectural designs, engravings, dimensions and materials used in the construction were similar. The plan of the minaret and design was the same in both buildings.
