This mosque has been founded in 1317 by the Zianid prince Abû Hammû Mûsâ Ier. It is a royal mosque which is part of the palace of El Mechouar Tlemcen. The royal palace was founded a century earlier by the zianid king "Yaghmorassen", the founder of the zianid dynasty whose capital was Tlemcen (It lasted between 1235 and 1556). The interior of the mosque has been modified during ottoman period (XVIst-XIXst century). Only, the Minaret remains from the zianid period. The building has been restored recently (2010) by the algerian government.

I like the framing you did here with the arch. I wonder also if possible to have a POV little to the left so that the mosque is not touching the arch....a good work anyway!

La composition est très intéressante avec cette arche du premier plan qui forme un cadre naturel. Peut-être aurait-il fallu se décaler un peu sur la gauche afin que le minaret ne touche pas cette arche.
La lumière est superbe.

You used a nice framing for the tower of the mosque, maybe you could do one little step to the left to make some space between the tower and the arc but.... I like your photo:-))
