[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This mosque was built in AD 859 by Maryam, sister of Fatima al-Fihri, who had built the al-Qarawiyin Mosque on the river's other side two years earlier with inherited family wealth. The grand carved doors on the north entrance, domed Zenet minaret, and detailed cedarwood carvings in the eaves, which bear a striking resemblance to those in the Musée Nejjarine, are the main things to see here, as the mosque itself is set back on a small elevation, making it hard to examine from outside.
