The Koutoubia Mosque

Phil Collinson
Detailed model of the Koutoubia Mosque, the largest mosque in Marrakech, Morocco. The minaret was completed under the reign of Yacoub el-Mansour (1184-1199)The name is derived from the Arabic al-Koutoubiyyin for librarian, since it used to be surrounded by sellers of manuscripts. Definately one of the top sights to see if visiting Morocco. #Africa #Islam #Koutoubia #Morocco #Mosque
